After a fun but tiring Christmas at Dinner Plain we headed South towards Bairnsdale to stay with Kay and Bob. They run a guest house and are the most-upstream private residence on the Nicholson river. Bob was away working on the rigs in Bass Strait, so we didn’t see him, but Kay made us most welcome and after a little talk about the snakes (red bellied black) that are around this year she sent us off to float in the river for much of our time.

The kids loved the experience and became quite confident in the flowing water. They also discovered that two people on one tube doesn’t add to stability!

Hopefully we will get back there again before Kay and Bob sell.
