albeit at a caravan park in a basic cabin :)

We stayed 2 nights and I had precooked our meals before leaving home which saved $$ and a bit of time. The meals were on the menu planner for those days anyways :)

As it was 40+ degrees both days, we spent a majority of our time in the pool and at the water park. The water park is a fairly recent addition to the Big4 caravan park in Swan Hill and it's fun for children and adults! The only gripe I have is it needs a shade sail over it. There is no protection from the sun whatsoever.

We did venture out for a morning of sightseeing at the Pioneer Settlement Village. We have been twice before but they've done some improvements and had some hands on things to do like butter making and rope making. There was also a school where you could learn to write with either chalk and a slate or an ink quill. A horse and cart ride was had too!

We left for home extra early on the Tuesday morning as it was going to be a shocker of a day weather wise and we had to get home to the animals. A small hiccup involving a flat tyre halfway home meant I had to completely unpack the boot to get to the spare tyre lol. We arrived home in time for breakfast ;)

A fun time away was had by all :)

Until next time
