Lake Mulwala

Hi Everyone, Hope your all well in your part of the world.
Not a lot happening here, Friday I took my elderly neighbours to Albury to their Eye specialist appointments, did a little shopping went to the Commercial club were we had a lovely lunch,Marge and Myself had crumbed lamb cutlets and veg. Ron had roast beef and veg it was very enjoyable, after they had a rest, was time for a little more retail therepy before heading back home. On my way home I called in to my Daughters to pick up my Grandaughter Rylie who wanted to spend the weekend with her Nan,. We stayed home had a lovely relaxing time together. as it was very cold and Sunday it rained.
Heres a few photo's of our lake taken over the last couple of weeks

Early start to the day, Sunrise from my back yard

A couple of photo's taken of a very depleted Lake Mulwala from the hwy
starting to rise again
Another view from the Hwy

Lake starting to rise

You can just make out the dark water marks on these dead trees

Yarrawonga "Paradise Queen" well out of the water

Under the traffic bridge that links Yarrawonga Victoria to Mulwala New South Wales. I took this on the way home from Bowls Thursday on Mulwala side see the dark marks showing the water level is well down, and rising slowly . Sunset over the lake
Thats all folk I promise to visit you all in the next few days.
Cheers \_/ \_/ \_/

Great sunrise and sunset shots. The lake is really down. Maybe y'all get a little more rain like we all need. Have a great week. Peace

Dear Jan ~~ Lovely photos of the sunrise and sunset and the Lake which is sad looking, until it get more water in it. Not as bad as Lake Victoria in Shepp. Glad you enjoyed the "I've learned" They were good.
Great both our footy teams won at
the weekend. Should happen more often
Take care, my friend, and keep warm.
Bet you and Rylie enjoyed the weekend. Love, Merle.

Hi Jen, those are lovely sunset photos, but isn't sad about the lack of water in our very dry country? Our dams are rising oh so slowly and we're a smidgeon over the 40% mark...that's the total amount for all dams.

Hopefully we'll have an old fashioned wet this summer...fingers crossed.

Our lakes are well below capacity here too. The last several years we've been in a drought but so far this summer we're just a little below average. It'll take quite a bit of rain to get our lakes back up to capacity again.

Loved seeing the photos of your local scenery, Jen.

Hope your week is a good one! :o)

Love and hugs,

Hi Jen, Thanks for visiting my blog, & leaving a comment.
I love those photos! They are brilliant. It is so sad to see the levels so depleted in the lakes, hope they fill, in all this cold!

Beautiful, beautiful, and more beautiful Jen! Wow...gorgeous photos. Loved 'em all, but that last photo is truly breathtaking!!!

Sounds like a good time --retail therapy. The BEST kind if you want my opinion.

I have never seen a lake full of sticky-out trees like that before!

Love the sunrise and sunset pics. How long has it taken for the lake to get so low? I know, when I lived in Florida, some of the lakes simply disappeared. They were very small man-made lakes, but lakes all the same.

Hallo Jen, the sunset looks very beautiful but the lake looks a little disturbing!
Have a nice week!

Hi Jen. I love the beautiful photos of the sunrise and sunset. There's something magical watching the sun greet you in the morning and bid goodnight.

I hope you get lots of rain for that lake. We have a similar problem with our lake Okeechobee the source of fresh water for all southern Florida

Those are great photographs of Lake Mulwala! Bet it's a tad cooler down there... did you hear it snowed in Sydney? We haven't been missing the rain though. Imagine the birds that will arrive once that lake begins to refill again!!!

Hi Jeanette, your lake seems to go through what our lake does. We are terribly dry here in Texas this SUMMER but our lake is holding up so far.
These are very pretty pictures, some of not nice happenings. I'm glad the water is coming back.
