Before leaving Yarrawonga for Hay we went to the Presbyterians for Palm Sunday as Peter was playing the organ so we went there to the service which we enjoyed. We had a cup of tea with the folks after. The minister spoke a good word. He mentioned that the former Arch Bishop of Canterbury Dr. Runcie, had stated that he didn't know what he believed about the crucifixion! How on earth can you be the head of a church and not know what you believe! Amazing.

On the foreshore they were having a farmer's market and we bought some fruit and veg and hot cross buns. Also some meat from a farmer. He said it was the only way he had survived the drought by selling at farmer's markets. He of course had the meat in a fridge and freezer van. Can you believe they still have to pay thousands of dollars for irrigation even if they don't get the water because of drought. Ridiculous!

Those hot cross buns are amazing. Obviously done to a traditional recipe. Mwah! Delicious.

The show grounds at Yarrawonga has a dump point and also drinkable town water to fill the tanks. That's one thing we'll have to be careful of as we travel. nothing worse than bad water.

This afternoon we set off to drive to Hay, nearly 300 kilometres, arriving there just before dark. The landscape changes dramatically as you travel north. It is very flat and it stretches for miles. When we got to Hay we found a nice spot beside the Murrumbidgee river where others were also parked. Looks a nice place.
