Hay - Day 1

Wednesday 24 May 2017

Forecast for today is fine with a temperature range of 7 to 19 degrees.

We spent the morning catching up on the washing - no vibration from the washing machine - yippee its fixed.

After lunch we did the tourist thing and visited the Shearer's Hall of Fame, the Hay Gaol and the Hay Court House.

Our visit to the Hall of Fame included a shearing demonstration in a shearing shed that had been relocated from the Murray Downs Station on the Murray River near Swan Hill.
