Day Six: Corowa to Barooga 73.3kms.

Up before the dawn today mainly because we had been in bed for 10 hours already. It's the country air that has you in bed for so long. Most riders, bar Robbo, stayed in their tents until the sunrise and headed off around about 8.30 am. Riding as a group again although Mark left later and did his own thing. They all arrived around the same time for morning tea and Mark about a half hour behind them. We skirted Lake Mulwala most of the morning and had morning tea on it's banks. Jacquei saved a ram who had got it's horns tangled up in some barbed wire.
Mark went off to look at Yarrawonga and Robbo went in search of an old friend who is a priest living in Yarrawonga.
 The remainder of the group got into camp at the resort before the real heat kicked in, even though it was still sitting slightly above 30 degrees. The girls had a go on the jumping pillow until Jacquei hit her head on the ground- it looked like it was going down.
Most of us went into Cobram for a stock up of bike parts and food items. Collis and I came back and braved the cold, cold waters of the swimming pool. All except Jim & Bill cooked their dinner in camp last night and it was lovely having freshly cooked meals with fresh ingredients. We had a few visitors over dinner- Robbo counted 27 kangaroos in one bunch. Lovely to see after the last trip we saw very few live kangaroos.
