Day Nine: Barham 0 kms Rest Day

Late start to the morning and did not get out of bed before 8 am. Very relaxing. Bill has taken a cabin again but this time in the caravan park for the 2 nights, the rest of us are camping. The campground is very serene and picturesque. We are all overlooking the murray and it is very treed. Nice camp kitchen and the amenities are very clean and plentiful. The people running the CP can't do enough for you- very pleasant.
Jen and Jim went down to the cafe for a cooked breakfast. I think Bill ended up there as well and then Jacquei walked past and joined them. The rest of us had breakfast in camp before heading off for walks and bike rides around the area. The town has a lovely feel to it as well and Collis & I went on the river gum walk looking at the sculptures and the old saw mill.

It was a relaxing day before we headed out to check the state of the unmade road we thought they may need to ride tomorrow. They can't ride it, it is far too rough and goes for 11 kms so we drove around looking for an alternative. Found a 3 km stretch of unmade road that was pretty good except for about 200 mts of it that they may have to walk the bikes through otherwise it looks good and this should add about 5- 10 kms onto the 60 kms for tomorrow.
The park lit the fire in the camp kitchen and we had a nice warm area to sit for dinner and chats. Collis and the girls went down to the servicemen's club for a drink and I had a go at the pokies and came away winning $25.00. So far I am in front so I better stop now.
