OUR BIG TRIP
DAY 131 Saturday 17th August
After a good sleep and breakfast we all left the camp at around 9.30am and headed out to the lookouts at the southern end of the town. The channel where all boating needs to come through to get into the town bay was a mass of boiling water being hurried on by a stiff west sou’west and we all decided it would not be nice to negotiate the channel without some know how.
After viewing the area from all three lookouts we headed off toward the south and went about 20 Km to the last of about 8 or 9 points of interest along the coast of the Indian Ocean. These points included Natural Bridge, Island Rock, Grandstand, Eagle Gorge, our favourite - Pot Alley, Mushroom Rock, Red Bluff, back to the town and camp for a late lunch. At this time we did a Skype connection to the Gippsland Gypsies members at their Castlemaine muster which I think all enjoyed.
During the early part of the morning Kay had misplaced her sun glasses and after much car and caravan searching the conclusion was they had to have been lost at one of our many stops today. We returned to a couple of the early sites but no sign. We will check with the info centre and perhaps the police on Monday……Maybe?
Derek has helped to set up the Skype program on the Kollmorgen computer, so they will be Skyping everywhere as soon as they know how. Just a short happy hour tonight before tea. After eating the Hales came to the Kollmorgen van and a game of Phase 10 was played with Gwen being crowned the winner and the rest of us were the loses. Then after all this, that favourite spot of mine… ZZZZZ.
