The Murray Princess on the Mighty Murray
Here's a lovely old paddle steamer trundling upstream on south-eastern Australia's lifeline, the mighty Murray.
You could say this location is somewhere between Adelaide and the "Back of Beyond".
Walker's flat is a popular destination for Shack Owners who, on weekends and holidays go water skiing, have mates round for a barbeque and a beer and unlax. It's about 90 kilometres east of Adelaide as the crow flies. Languages spoken range from Ozzie to Swahili depending on the lateness of the hour. Most sentences end in "Nah worries mate", which roughly translates as "d'accord" in French. On Google Earth rip over to 34 45 49.47 S - 139 34 14 . 70 E.
Today the Solar Day was 14 hours and 55 seconds long at Walker's Flat.
