          Recently a small, but enthusiastic group of senior cruisers loaded their boats and headed for Yarrawonga and the Murray. A two night trip was planned and we launched 10kms upstream of the weir and cruised upstream to the pretty river village of Bundalong. This area is a haven for water skiers and fishermen.

          We continued on, and although not on the agenda, we found ourselves cruising the Ovens River. We were very impressed with this stretch of water and noticed a number of good camping spots along the banks.

          But the Murray was the river we had come to cruise, so when we had gone as far as we could on the Ovens we turned back and made our way into the larger river. We made camp on a cleared bank further upstream. Paddy the pup, who was experiencing his first cruise, thought it great to have river sand to dig holes in.

          Our second night was spent at the mouth of a little waterway which was running into the Murray from one of the large billabongs that are found in the area. No matter how many times we travel this river it seems there is always something different to find.

          This was just a short cruise but one that was thoroughly enjoyed. Perhaps on a future trip we might explore the Ovens further - a river which has the added advantage of no skiing or wake boats.
