Two Weeks Later

Sadly I have been unable to find the time (and the internet access) to update my travels on this site.

I am still travelling.  I set off as planned and stayed at Boggabilla, Dubbo, Canberra, Eden, Sale, Launceston and Hobart before returning to Melbourne.

I spent two days in Melbourne - almost in rest mode with a friend, and yesterday I set off early in the morning to visit my sister in law, and then drive along the Great Ocean Road, and on to Warrnambool.

Way back in 1968 we lived in Warrnambool.  It was where our daughter was born.  When in Melbourne I visited a house in Seaford, where we lived in 1969, and took a photo of it.  My (now adult) children would not recognise the house - but it will be recorded in our family history.

The journey to Warrnambool took all day.  I did stop frequently to take photos

Around Anglesea

Amazing houses with views to sea

More Sea

Some of the sights



The weather was not the best.  Cold and frequently raining.  Perhaps another time I can come back and have a better look - especially around Port Campbell, which is where the 12 Apostles are.

I reached Warrnambool just before 6 pm.  It was dark and cold and I quickly found my motel and decided just to have snacks for my meal.  

Today I will visit a few places around Warrnambool and Port Fairy, before going on to Mt Gambier.

What a Journey!

Ready to Set off to Tasmania

Well, in 24 hours time, I expect to be on the road on my way to Boggabilla in New South Wales.

I am not quite ready, but will be by the end of today I suspect/hope.

I am booked.  Read details here.

I will make my final list today, and pack the car with the rest of my things, empty the refrigerator, and be all set for last minute stuff tomorrow morning.

Look out Tasmania, here I come.

One Adventure Ends, Another Starts

I nearly completed the Ultimate Blog Challenge, but not quite.  As it turned out July ended up being a very busy month for me, and I was challenged daily with the UBC, but managed most of it.  I was dogged with other community service projects, a health issue (oh, my feet!), planning for my adventure down south and a house guest.  Too much!  I am getting too old.

So, in 48 hours from now, on Monday August 15th, I hope to set off to stay Monday night at the small town of Boggabilla, in New South Wales.  There is not much to see at Boggabilla but I have a few things to see including the Goondiwindi Customs House and the Wobbly Boot Hotel


 

Meanwhile, today, I have my guest from China and we will be heading off around 9 am perhaps to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Not sure exactly where we will go today, but a leisurely day I hope as I need it and I am sure he does.
