Mar 17, 2020 - Day 3 of this adventure

I must have slept well, did not wake till around 0900. I offered an extensive breakfast menu, omelette, eggs anyway on toast, cereal, toast….. But toast was chosen, mind you running on solar it was handcrafted toast done the old fashioned way. That out of the way we drove out toward Hicks Point but could only get through to Tamboon. Now that is a sleepy little place let me tell you, maybe 30 weekenders and absolutely off the grid living. Very peaceful though. The road in deserves a special mention, its basically a goat track and I'm pleased...

Dec 21, 2005 - Lakes Entrance

Next day we had an early start to accompany Pam on a work related trip for a couple of days to a place called Lakes Entrance on the Eastern side of Victoria, close to the New South Wales border. We made various stops on our trip out to Lakes Entrance, which we took advantage of by having a nosey around and filling our faces in cafes while Pam went off and did her thing in the Safeway's of the towns. Arrived at Lakes Entrance late in the afternoon only to find it raining! Pam thinks we are cursed and we are starting to agree! Despite the...
