On the road again - north this time.

Up earlyish and on the road to Mildura,

stopping for more silos en route
and pasta from this enterprising shop in Hopetoun which makes and sells delicious pasta and sauces.  Perfect idea for a wheat town.
We arrived in Mildura in the late afternoon and ate lunch at this pop-up style cafe on the waterfront.  Mildura is working hard to connect the city with the Murray River.
I was also excited to see that the conundrum about the old hospital building has finally been resolved.  Many had called for its demolition which I thought highly likely for, to me, Mildura is a soulless town without a heritage heart despite some lovely deco features.  The hospital is being converted to apartments and they will be stunning.
