Warrnambool, Mildura, Swan Hill, Benalla

 I had two weeks off work recently and took the opportunity to do some touring around Victoria.
Mrs Holt Press and I had a day out to Warrnambool in the south west of the state on the train.
 I then took a train and bus journey to Mildura to visit Julie and Mrs King before going on to Benalla via Swan Hill to see Mum and Vicki. As "promised" here are a few pics from my travels.

Warrnambool is a pretty little town on the ocean which reminds me a bit of Albany

Broadie's Boys

My mate Broady sent me the link to this great video of his kids Tom and Ned trying to win Freo's goal of the year comp, AND providing their own musical backing. Very cool.
Nice work boys.

Tom & Ned

Talking of cool, the Cats were that and more on Saturday arvo in beating the high-flying Crows.
