Now at Bindara Station

Arrived here at Bindara Station yesterday.It is on the western side of the Darling down the river from Menindee about half the way to Wentworth. A great spot and we are now looking at our second night camping out here right beside the river on a nice grassy patch with the sun slowing submerging into the landscape. The fire is going nicely and keeps the toes warm before we crawl into the van for another blissful night. We are out of port! Went for a stroll along the river today, various wildflowers in bloom along the river bank,   never seems the same it  twists and turns; the banks  are quite steep here 7 or 8 metres or so down to the water. A lot of red river gum seedlings  have emerged from the levee banks around the camp site, in forty or fifty years they will rival the grand old trees along the banks.

 We head off tomorrow for Mungo National Park, via Pooncarie. It is about 250k and we will be up early.
