Rain! Looked out of the window this morning and it was raining! No walk for the little lady with Daddy, so we are all up early instead.

We don't have much of a drive to do today, so we head to the shops for our last food shop in America. Emma will miss her Walmart shops, they are so good, but they don't beat a Sainbury's delivery.

The coast line is lovely and reminds us a little of sections of the Great Ocean Road. We are just lacking sunshine to brighten it up today. We stop for lunch in the van and the three youngest Kemptons have a nap in the van, whilst Rich heads to the pub for a beer. It's was a real pub with ales on tap and not a lager in sight! Excellent find.

Lovely campsite for the night, and its not many times we have said that! Beautiful forested site right by the river, huge pitch and the sun is out. Playtime this afternoon including lots and lots of bubbles. Bubbles blown by Dylan and Emma and popped by Taya. Dylan decides to bring everything he can lay his hands on in the RV outside, then later to tidy it up onto the steps of the van. He then announces proudly "look mummy I've made a crazy mess"! We have a wander by the river and look in the camp shop. Little D is particularly taken with the fishing nets.

Dylan makes his first post on Emma's Facebook, 'The'; very proud he managed a proper word!

Linguine bolognese for dinner, Taya eats more than her brother! Followed up with banana yoghurt. Messy face, she is never fond of having her face wiped afterwards. She is ready for some Grandma Lizzie pampering - warm cloth and a dry one afterwards. Swift bedtimes for the little people and a nice roaring fire by the van to enjoy a few beers tonight whilst we plan our day tomorrow.
