From Seymour, we headed north-ish.
Nick had travelled as far as Murchison back in August but the countryside was new for everyone else.
It was a much hotter day and we spotted four snakes on the road, along the way.
Two were still alive, the others hadn't survived the high-speed traffic. I also saw a tortoise. Often we stop to escort them across the road but in this case we were on a motorway. He/she seemed fairly safe though, on the water-side of the road and presumably headed to a huge body of water. We decided we wanted to go there, too!
"There" was Goulburn Weir - a lovely spot with grassed area for picnics/BBQs and games, lots of trees and masses of beautiful flowers. Nick and I walked out along the dam wall, while Vaughan played on the equipment and Erin collected flower seeds.
I'm not generally good with heights, or raised mesh walkways. I surprised myself though and managed to walk across as far as I did. I even went out on the landing area where the man is standing in the pic above, though wasn't at all comfortable.
One of the highlights of the visit was watching a tortoise body-surfing in the current! Well, I like to think he/she was enjoying playing in the white-water and not just stuck in an endless loop!
