Odds and ends in Mildura

We went to the market in Merbien, about 20 km out of Mildura. The book stall was doing a roaring trade. We helped out by buying 5 books, for only $18. We also bought some vegetables that were so fresh we were still able to eat them over a week later.

I love asparagus and this was fresh and fat. I stood the bunches in cups of water. (For those of you who don’t know caravans, the white thing in front of the asparagus is the pump tap over the sink.)

You can see how fresh the eggs were! (I did wash them carefully before breaking them open.)

I loved walking down by the river. This duck family only had 12 ducklings. I saw one with 16!

How could you not love it when the light is like this in the evening?

    You had me when I read the word markets, and then books, asparagus and eggs – that was a great market outcome 🙂
    Ducks, ducklings, a walk by the river in the evening – Mildura sounds wonderful.
