Port of Echuca

Late in February we headed up the Calder Hwy to the Port of Echuca for an overnight trip.  The weather wasn’t forecast to be particularly nice on the Saturday, but Sunday was supposed to be pretty good so we took off anyway.

By the time we were heading through Wallan the rain started to set in…. pic above was taken just out of Rochester.. I spotted the knarly tree, second car behind us spotted the ‘roos but they took off as we pulled over…

We were staying at EastEnder Cottage.. booked through Take A Break.. lovely house and very comfy at a very good price… it was still raining on and off when we arrived so we went for a walk around the Port and then came back to the house to wait for the rain to pass.  When the sun started to come out the kids were given water balloons to play with 🙂

Sunday morning the rain had stopped…..we went down to the port early morning to get some shots of the river as the sun came up.  In the Port Precinct they have many old original buildings still standing… and a stagecoach you can ride pulled by this lovely pair of greys. we took the ride.. kudo’s to the pioneers, I didn’t realise how awkward it is climbing in and out of the old coach… don’t know how the ladies of the 1800’s managed in long dresses and corsets!
