Australia 10 September: Mildura - Lake Cullullerine
Mighty Murray Peace Run
Early Australian Inn hosted us. This is the second Peace Run that Jean and Jackie from Early Australian Motor Inn, Mildura, have kindly given us a room at their beautiful family run motel.
Thankyou very much to Brad from Big 4 Golden River Holiday Park, Mildura, for giving the Peace Run a cabin and to Karen and Phillip for welcoming us.
This years peace run began in Mildura. The community members were so generous. Mildura Rotary had delicious food for us. Joy made us pumpkin soup and Neil cooked us thin crust pizza that we devoured.
This runner is a Collingwood supporter. The kids cheered him up as he was struggling to get over their loss to West Coast Eagles.
The Mayor Melissa Hederics gave a thoughtful and moving speech. She recommeneded we visit where the two rivers meet (the Murray and the Darling) Right in Wentworth it was an amazing place.
Wentworth Rotary put on a glorious spread at their museum the Pioneer Museum. It was full of interesting artefacts and has an amazing mural. Thanks to Orange World for the Orange Juice. The freshest ever!
Rhonda from Lake Cullulleraine Caravan Park kindly hosted us for Monday night. The sunset over the lake was amazing, as was swimming in the refreshing lake after a long days running.
