September 2nd 3:05pm
Gillards Beach at Mimosa National Park

Well it has been exactly a month since we have written a blog...oh jeez. It's just been so busy!

Right now we are in the state of New South Wales. Almost at the southern tip of where Victoria and NSW touch. We found the most brilliant campground. We have a view of the ocean, kangaroos all over the place, firewood supplied, and peace and quiet. We got here about 3pm yesterday and set Howey up, Keir chopped some firewood, played some cards, had some vino, made dinner and sat by the fire for the rest of the night. Then today we got up around 9ish made coffee, sat on our camp chairs and watched the waves, then went to the beach with more coffee and watch some more waves, came back to our perfect campsite, did some essential laundry in the wash basin, read our books, had a cheese party with some Clare Valley creamed Sherry for lunch, went for a walk down the beach, and now watching the sun go behind the clouds for the night. That's pretty much it. Like I said, RELAXING! We will probably spend another day here tomorrow, especially if it is as nice as it was today. This place would be so perfect if we were here in like 3 more months. We are wanting to jump in the ocean so badly...but is still winter, and chilly if not in the direct sunlight.

The kangaroos are so tame here. We saw a few with young Joeys in their pouches. Pretty cute. The one that hangs out at our site mostly, is named Shaggy...he has major bed head, and is always scratching his bum, I think he is the black sheep of the bunch. Then we have 3 or 4 birds that sing like the beginning of the Star Wars Theme song...REALLY! Duh da da duh da da get it right??

Anyways, should get going...I am oh so getting dinner started...or at least thinking about it...ciao for now!

Kylie & Keir
