Thursday 10th May - Bordertown to Victor Harbour

Strath Corner Bakery
We left Bordertown at about 9:30.  Drove through Keith and Tallem Bend.  We stopped at Strathalbyn for lunch in the same bakery we had lunch when we were last here about 13 years ago.  It was the Stath Corner Bakery.
We continued on to Middleton, by-passed Murray Bridge and Goolwa.  Arrived at Victor Harbour Beachfront Park at 2pm.
Our ensuite site

When Bill got the caravan set up he discovered he hadn't packed any outdoor chairs, so one of our first tasks was to hit the shopping centre to see what we could buy.  Settled on two chairs from Big W @ $30 each.  Quite sturdy chairs, and relatively easy to get out of for me.
View from the site
Our view from the site was lovely.
We had dinner at the Grosvenor Hotel.  As soon as we walked in we realised it was the same pub we'd had a meal in last time we were here, because it had a train running around the walls of the dining room.
Grosvenor Hotel
We didn't have the camera, so no photos of the train.  Sadly there are no photos on the internet either.  The train is not quite as good as the one that was operating years ago.  that train has been retired, and is on display above the bar.  It was a magnificent looking specimen.  The new one is more modern looking, and it doesn't make noises like the old one did when it blew its whistle.
