This is an ad hoc blog whose focus and direction is still being discovered. Gardening is a passion as is science, Bible, theology and computing: all of which will be melded together into this web site.
We loved the last Murray River houseboat trip taken in winter so much we tried it again this year. Also as an incentive, we purchased a voucher reducing the cost to half-price - being an incentive to get people to hire during winter. This time we left Renmark and headed down stream, although the first night was spent just below Whirlpool Corner, upstream, as the weather was too atrocious and the lock-master would not allow us passage through Lock 5. We took a leisurely trip to Lock 4 and back over 5 five nights - with rain on the last night and day. The weather was every type! High wind and dust, frosty mornings, fog and rain.
