Di, the owner, is such a lovely lady. Upon arriving she left a note for us explaining she had gone to lunch and was sorry not to be able to greet us. We arrived in our cottage (Canopy) and there were homemade cookies and bird seed awaiting us. We wasted no time in feeding the local parrots, in no time we had Crimson Rosellas, King Parrots and Common Bronzewings feeding from the feeder, much to the delight of our friends from the UK who we took there. There are wonderful bushwalks around the property, and also into the Otways National Park which adjoins the property. My partner and I are already planning our next trip this Winter. Thanks Di! Trish (& UK friends)

Upon arrival, I was glad I had booked in a couple of days ago, which is something I don't normally do. Pretty much every site was booked, including unpowered tents everywhere, but I was lucky enough to snag an end site with a large grassed area overlooking the stream with a few tents on it. The first day ...
... playing mindless shooters at full blast to the stoned low-life yelling out for his crackhead girlfriend "Chelsea" and young delinquents receiving some sort of court prep, we've seen it all. Best of all however, were the librarians/therapists chewing the fat with the fruity kind regarding their cooking skills. What a place! Salvation in form of coffee couldn't have ...
... pretty much stops whilst we are in the launderette. This is the first time we have used a proper laundrette whilst away. We have either hand washed or used (usually) old laundry machines at campsites. The machines here were good, and quick. Washed and dried in well under and hour.
We were a bit ahead of schedule, expecting the washing to have taken longer, so we decide not to be practical and venture into Geelong city centre to see what it had to offer.
... we quickly skirted around them and were thankful for the mellowness of the one we happened upon while we were having our scones!
By the time we left Aireys Inlet it was absolutely bucketing down. We got back to the van only to realise that we had inadvertently left our roof vents open and our bed and the floor of the van was dripping with rain. So, we did a bit of a cleanup, turned the heater on in the van and went out for dinner while it dried! Unfortunately ...
... park. It was about a twenty minute bushwalk into this lake which appeared to be man-made with its sentinels of dead trees rising from its murky depths. I continued walking around the lake to a little beach and then further around the lake's perimeter track, espying only one snake. All up about one and a half hours walking. I cooled off with a solar shower on my return which Rod had set up in my absence. A leisurely afternoon reading en ...
