    This morning we decided to walk the esplanade all the way into Portarlington. It was a hot, sunny day so we were glad to reach an air conditioned café at the other end. Portarlington is a cute town with a nice beachfront area. We decided to take the bus back as it was just too hot to make the return journey on foot... at the bus stop we met a Dutch lady visiting the area, such a small world. We had a late lunch at the campsite and ...

Wow, it's a wonder if any of those "boondies" ever hit anyone or their vehicles. A stop at the Kennett River for some lunch and a walk around under the gum trees to spot some koalas sleeping in the trees. There were some red parrots but damn it if some noisy tourists scared ...

    Howdy folks,

    Having put on enough clothes last night, we managed to sleep through until morning. There is always that chance you take, that even when you go to the toilet before you roll into the tent, you will have to get up at 4am to go to the toilet! I think that the body produces it by trying to keep you warmer. In any case, we managed to get up and have the tent packed by 8am.We drove 2kms south to the Information Centre to do a morning wildlife hike. We had ...
