We spent a couple of hours on the Thursday afternoon at the church, then knocked off for the day.

When we got back to the property, Geoff took us all out on the Four-Wheeler (Quad Bike) and we looked at his property and went Roo spotting. We saw our first (live) Kangaroos of the trip - which was surprising since we've covered 2500Km's already!
On Friday morning, we helped Vanessa (Steve's wife) feed Kuba (her horse - who lives in the paddock next to where our Caravan was parked), then we went back to the church and continued working.

On Saturday morning we finished off at the church and then headed out to Lake Eppalock to have a look. Saturday was really hot, and because the lake was full of blue/green algae (so we couldn't swim), we headed back to the farm and the kids had a good run-around in the sprinklers which cooled them off nicely.

Steve and Vanessa had kindly invited us to join in their daughters Birthday Celebrations with a BBQ at their place - which was a great time to have a chat and get to know Steve and Vanessa. The kids had a ball playing with the other kids.
On Sunday morning we went to the 9am service, because it was the first Sunday of the month the Uniting Church minister ran the service. This was a very different service for us and the kids had to stay in with us the whole time, but did very well (on the whole). We went back to Bendigo on Sunday afternoon and rode scooters around Lake Weeroona. It was a much cooler day than the previous day (and even started raining on us a little) but it was better than sweltering in the heat and we had a great time at the Lake.
