The Great (and wet) Ocean Road

After a quick breaky of Bill’s “worlds best eggs” we bid farewell to Bill and his boys and headed for the Great Ocean Road. Along the way we’re to follow the coastline of the Mornington Peninsula along through some great little towns such as Mount Martha and Dromana and found kilometres of colourful little beach huts. Some were for sale so curiously we looked them up and they range from about $85k to $200k each. Some of the houses around here are absolute mansions on acres and beach front so I can only imagine how much they sell for.

Wilsons Prom and Frankston

After a cold and wet night we were ready to leave the high country and chase some warmer temperatures! So we packed up early and got on the road for the prom. A strange noise had appeared somewhere in/on the car which kept us busy for a couple of hours and about ten roadside stops to try figure it out, to no avail… Stopped in Yarrum for lunch at a chicken shop, tried to order a potato scollop to which we got odd looks and got reeducated that they have “potato cakes”.

Next stop was Wilson’s Promontory and what a magic place it is! Driving in it had that pristine Continue reading

Snowy Mountains and Vic High Country wrap up

Dave & Tee in front of Kosciusko

After farewelling Bernie once leaving the Deua National Park and a quick stop at Cooma to pick up some thermals for me and a flanno each from Target Country, we pointed the Prado towards Jindabyne to begin the journey down through the Snowy Mountains and Victorian High Country. We decided night 1 should be at Sawpit creek, which was an old haunt back in the day when we would head to the snow and camp rather than staying in a cabin, we knew it had a decent shower block which by now we were definitely in need of! The camp site was virtually empty and Continue reading

Deua National Park with Bez

We had fantastic couple of days with Judy and Bain (my aunt and uncle) where we were spoiled rotten! A trip to Mogo Zoo with Judy was a highlight as was the company. We had many great meals, chats by the fire and more than a few bottles of wine between us. Hearing about the old days and the Clark family history was very special and something we will cherish.

Judy sent us off in typical fashion, insisting on a cooked breakfast Continue reading

Farewell Party

Well my wife doesn’t have a job anymore, the unemployed dero! We celebrated the fact with a shin dig at “The Alex” in Alexandria with all the Decorative Events team which was a great night. Then on Saturday night we had a little Continue reading
