Day 34 – Blanchetown to Murray Bridge

We changed our plans a bit by skipping Manum and heading straight to Murray Bridge but staying there for 2 nights. But his means that we had to travel 158 kms in a day. The day went well and was calm and we made the distance without any issues. We had lunch at Manum and saw Murray Princess, the largest paddle boat on the Murray. Quite a sight and she makes large waves at the stern from the rotating paddles.

In the evening we went to the Murray Bridge RSL for dinner. Mum and Neil had organised a fundraiser with them which they kindly offered to host. Dianne spoke about her journey on MS and the importance of MS research. The patrons of the RSL were very generous on the night and their donations were greatly appreciated. Overall we had a great night of socialising, meeting new friends and raising awareness on MS.
