120107 Mt Gambier

It was hard to leave the camp site where we have been for 11 nights.  Would you believe that we left 2 hours after originally planning to depart at 10:30am.  The final ‘walk along the beach’ was hard to finish and we stood on the sand hills for quite some time in farewell mode.

We took some pics around Robe; can you see all the vehicles lined up along the beach?  We have never seen that before.  The Big4 campground in the town itself, was crammed full; side-by-side with hardly any vegetation around – and one guy said he ‘had come here for the last 3 years or so”.  We don’t know why, really.  Perhaps we have been spoilt with a great site for 11 days.

After dropping in to drive around Beachport, we drove on to Mt Gambier and are camping at the Big4 just near Blue Lake.  What a magnificent blue the lake is.  The properties around Mt Gambier seem to be well manicured and are pleasant indeed.

We are travelling to Hamilton today and hope to meet up with Peter and Lin Tung who used to be in Warburton ‘years ago’.  Then on to Ballarat to watch the Australian Road Cycling Championship Men’s Road Race before driving back to home on Sunday late afternoon.  Work on Monday – drad!!!
