Kids on top of a mound of salty sand
Day Two – Pink Lakes – Near Underpool, NSW
Rain. You bastard! Not too hard, but consistent from around 3 am until 10 am, from Hay until near Swan Hill.
Packing up was in the rain, which is always a turd, but thank God for my new Akubra (ay, Aaron!!!), I was dry as a bone (hahaha). Getting out of the camp site was a little ordinary due to the slippery mud/clay. The poor old Maverick doesn't 'creep' as well with the one tonne trailer, but we made it in the end. After seeing our ordinary effort, the Rav 4 flew up – at a rate of knots!
A pretty slow trip due to the rain but we eventually got to the banks of the Murray River for a quick stop and then on to the Pinks Lakes, in Murray-Sunset National Park.
What a spot! A dozen or so separate spots on the edge of Lake Crosbie, with a slight breeze, a strange pink hue from the lake and a roast for dinner. All of this after a drive through the NP where we learned a heap about the history of salt mining in the area, heaps
Lake Hardy with a dash of pink
about Mallee bush life and a lot of time spent trying to get a perfect shot of the local wildlife in the scrub.
Life is tough :-P On the road to Radelaide tomorrow!
