Another day of beautiful weather, through equally beautiful countryside. The fields were again a mixture of yellow and green, full of canola and wheat.
After I passed through the town of Devenish at the 10 km mark, I didn’t see another town until the end of the day, when I reached Glenrowan. This is the town where Ned Kelly was captured in 1880, after a marathon siege and shootout with police. There is much in the town to remind you of this.
Thanks to all those who have donated to Oxfam recently. Donation activity certainly appears to be on the increase, as I approach the finish.
