After getting some stitches out at the doctors (a BCC removed), I hooked up the caravan only to find that the left van indicator didn’t work. Couldn’t find the problem so set off anyway, then the brakes stopped working. Headed home tightened screws and got them going. The only thing is that they turn off in reverse! I can live with that. Out to Moorooduc highway, oh bugger no towing mirrors, another u turn back to home. Now I am away, I think I need a sidekick to check things for me!
First night at Stratford and then on to Eden, lucky to set up and pack up in the dry. On the way passed through Cann River which holds special memories for my neighbours Olga and Ivan, that story is for another day! I am camped at Eden Beachfront Caravan Park on a holiday auctions deal of $175 for 10 days. Nice park right on the beach 4 km west of Eden. The sites are quite small and the next people were partly on my site which I didn’t realise until some time later and I realised I was overlapping the next site. So after some discussion, my neighbour and I went to reception with the sad tale and I ended up being allowed to stay on the two sites, upgraded to ensuite and no extra cost, that has to be a win!
I decided fish and chips were the go for lunch and went to the best shop in Eden and for $10.50 enjoyed an excellent meal that I couldn’t finish, the fish was whiting.
The next day was shopping followed by a picnic and walk at Goodenia Rainforest in South East Forests NP. It was an enjoyable walk but downhill all the way out with quite a few steps and very rough underfoot.
Today was a picnic in Bed Boyd NP where Marg and I have enjoyed a picnic in the past. It is a lovely picnic area although the BBQ didn’t work, so it was out with the little gas stove and cast iron fry pan to cook my steak sandwich. You may notice the little stove on the end of the table. Did a short walk to Haycock Pt, which has good views up and down the coast.
On one of the walks I noticed some beautiful lilies and a echidna beside the road which had dug in before I could get close, so this photo is from a distance.
