Today started out with a 1:30am phone call. Sharlee was the caller and she was all distraught because she heard a gushing noise and got out of bed to be met by wet carpet; quite a surprise. The hot water outlet to her vanity in the bedroom had come adrift and water was all through the place causing soppy carpets to worry about. Oh well, things are on the mend now but caused a day off work waiting for plumbers and carpet cleaners to turn up and fix the situation or start the ‘healing’ process.
That meant today has been a ‘tired’ sort of day. Up late and no early morning run. Just an ‘after breakfast’ stroll along the beautiful beach just over the sand hills. At one stage, there were 20 4WDs driving along the ‘highway’ from Beachport to Robe.
This evening, while having the second meal of the day (weight/shape adjustments are on the way), we saw an echidna walking down the track just across from our site. Friendly little fellow indeed and he didn’t even seem shy to have his photo taken.
The wind yesterday during the very hot 40 degrees was quite strong and kept us off the beach and near the site in case we needed to attend to anything going wrong. Otherwise, nothing much has changed; just a great quiet spot to enjoy a relaxing holiday.
The Last Photo we took in 2011
This is just beside our site. Lots of kangaroos and other wildlife to enjoy.
Last evening, we sat on the sand hills watching 2011 come to a close. We had the most awesome sky to view the sunset and so shot over 50 photos. Just some are showing but the cloud formation was just something to behold. We hope you enjoy.
We attended the New Year’s Eve Party at the activities centre, but party pooped and left at 11:30pm; didn’t hear any of the yelling that usually goes on at NYE parties – we must have gone to sleep very quickly after having walked about 16km during the day.
2012 offers new excitement for all of us. I guess a lot will happen with the motorhome of a weekend visiting great locations around Victoria. We have a planned group trip to Italy with a Cruise attached leaving in May, and are looking forward to that. Our best wishes for 2012 goes to each of you and we hope to meet up with many of you again.
Keep August 2013 free to join our group tour to the game parks in Africa plus a few other highlights.
We are really enjoying the quietness and serenity. Now and then a motor is heard but predominately, bush sounds and silence reigns. The walks along the beach are really great and we are taking some kilos off, we believe.
Each day has had glorious sunshine but today is the best so far – no wind as at 11:00am. Not that the wind has been a problem. It has been coolish in the shade.
Meals have been well done and scrumptious. See the picture of the quiche.
This morning, I was out running/walking 3km before 6:00am and then came back to the motorhome for English Breakfast tea, followed by a 6 km walk along the beach with Lyn. After a healthy breakfast of cereal, pancakes, fruit and yoghurt, I gave Lyn a massage out in the cool of the awning. What a way to spend a Saturday morning; must do it more often.
So you guys, enjoy the rush of the cities and the pressure of work while we lap up the great outdoors and all that the sun has for us. Be prepared, you may see two new well-tanned, people when we get back to Woori Yallock.
