Days 132 -136
After a very cold morning, we headed through Bendigo, filling up our water and dumping the toilet at the showgrounds and headed for Aysons Reserve. This free camp is near Burnewang and we stopped here for five glorious nights.
We spent the time resting and relaxing next to the creek. We had a campfire every night and even cooked some meals using it. We enjoyed talking to many different people who came and went while we were there. We even met a lady with a pet ferret that she took for regular walks!
NOTE: We found this place on WikiCamps App, but during our stay it disappeared from the app. Not sure what is going on there, but it is a great free camp!
On our third day there, the nearby towns firetruck was brought out for a trial run as bushfire season is coming very quickly.
This truck is run by a remote control which the guy was holding. He was testing it to make sure the controller was working.
B wanted to go over and was given a go at shooting out the water at the front of the firetruck.
He also held the end that is put on the fire hoses. It was quite heavy for him.
I took a picture of hubby taking a picture of B shooting out the water at the front of the firetruck.
We also played a bit of boules. I’d purchased these from Coles just before we left.
The Air Hogg flew really well in the breeze. The boys loved chasing it around.

Some of the lovely sunsets we saw.
