We've booked a holiday. Barcelona? Porto? Prague? London? Las Vegas? San Francisco? Hawaii? Catch up with JayLa in Budapest?
Nah, the government says no and none are COVID safe yet anyway.
Echuca is in the north of our state of Victoria. We don't normally like straying far from the sea for a caravan park cabin holiday but we are, although we will be on the banks of the mighty Murray River that divides the states of Victoria and New South Wales. Tricky point. If the borders are closed between the two states, can we take a paddle steamer lunch cruise on the Murry River which is officially in NSW?
As COVID waxes and wanes in Australia and state lock downs happen, we are not leaving our state.
We were looking for a local holiday for next week but everything was pretty well booked out. Instead we have booked for the first week in March.
We will stay three nights in Echuca and visit Step Mother and her partner who is in his 90s and not terribly well and they live twenty minutes drive from Echuca. Echuca is an interesting town and a damn lot cheaper to stay in that our seaside towns.
Something to look forward to.
