After our decent walk we returned to the centre of Mildura and did some banking then strolled the Langtree Mall looking for Lilly (some will get it). We came across Hudaks Bakery (as pictured on their site) and had a fine old bit of nosh. Very nice.
We then went off to the local Arts Centre at the fine old Rio Vista house. We toured the grand house and the quite good art galleries.We then took a walk across the road to look down onto the river. I spied cars and activity so we found the road down to the river bank and Lock 11. I should read my own link but instead I will just guess that the weir with the lock is to keep the water at a stable height for practical reasons such as houseboats. The lock, so someone told us, had just filled before we arrived. Damn. They thought it was because a paddle steamer was coming, so we hung around for a bit, but none arrived.
Enough culcha, exercise and history and as there was a cold wind blowing, we went back to our billet, bought a roasted chicken, cooked some spuds and greens and settled in front of the tv. Tomorrow, Broken Hill bound.
