On The Road Again

Today we started or next adventure, taking "Snubby" the silver sidecar and "Paris" the camper trailer. 
I'm having my first go at posting using my ipad.  Usually we take a small laptop with us, but the ipad should be much more convenient.

We just headed south, stopping for lunch at Holbrook next to the submarine. 

We've driven through here many times, but have never stopped to look at the submarine.  Mind you, we didn't go into the museum this time either.  

I'd hate to be standing on the edge where Mick is in a wild sea.

The submarine is the HMAS Otway.  I'm not sure of its history or why it is now at Holbrook, and as we have limited internet at the moment I can't look it up. 

Back on the road we just headed down the hume Freeway until we were ready to call it quits for the day.  We ended up at Euora in Central Victoria in a caravan park.  No photo yet, as we got talking......fancy that!!  I'll take one in the morning as we are in a lovely spot beside the creek. 

Euora is one of those little towns off the side of the freeway you don't usually go into, but it is delightful and I would like to come back again one day.

We went for a walk around the town.  Don't you love these gum nuts.  Mick is up ahead saying "Hurry up". 

The town is quite historic and is famous for Ned Kelly holding up the local bank. Here are a few snapshots from our stroll.

There is a memorial for Victorian VC recipients which was well done.  

We went to a local pub for dinner.  The meal was delicious.  I had to try Eggplant Chips with Cumin Salt and Aoli.  Always looking for new ways to use our egg plants. These were so very good.  I must try them when we get home.

Tomorrow we start the real part of our holiday.  Bring it on.
