Thursday 25th August

A fairly lazy start to the day, which we spent largely at the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement.  Quite interesting display of old buildings.  Bought Susan some raspberry drops at the General Store.  Bill also bought a mood ring for himself.   
We saw an old Chevrolet that looked very much like the 1928 Chevy we used to have when I was a kid.  Had a ride in an old 1925 Dodge which sounded like it was on its last legs! 
Bill wouldn’t go on the horse and carriage ride although I would have liked to.  The old Church was lovely, with beautiful stained glass windows.  Also saw an old church that had been fitted out as a Masonic temple (although never used as such).  Had a bit of a look at the Paddle Steamer Gem which is being gradually restored.  Had lunch at the café – Bill had a pie and a raspberry jelly cake and I had a pastie and a properly made lime spider.  The 3D carousel theatre was fascinating.
Went for dinner at the Bowls Club – nothing special.
