I find it quite incredible that this is the last day of January this month just went by in a blur!!!
Woke up to still grey skies and temperatures really not normal for this part of the world at this time of the year.
Today was a road trip to a town called Lorne about 30 minutes away where I was to experience my first Australian waterfall and as you can see it is a nice high fast flowing one..
I then drove a few more miles and then hiked about 45 minutes to these nice gentle cascades..
He was just sitting in the middle of road and you could see how close I could get he looked so cute but I bet that those claws can do some damage.....I went back to the car and turned around a few yards down the road and when I came back he was where he should be!!!
So another first....my first koala bear sighting!!!
Some views of the coastal drive..
I stopped at this next lookout and could not believe my eyes!!!!
I came home to the cabin around 4pm and the sun was out and it was hot so I sat on the back stoop with a cool drink and my Kobo and spent an hour enjoying myself!!!
My lovely hostess knocked on my door around 5.30pm and asked if I would be interesting in coming over for supper at 7.30pm and watch the live Men's tennis finals on the big screen!!!
Well I did have to think about this for maybe a nano second.....so that is where I went tonight...they have a lovely home and I asked Andy questions about farming and sheep and learned lots...the dinner was lovely and the match fascinating..congratulations Novak!!!!, I just wished I could play at least one of the shots!!!
What a wonderful two weeks of enjoying Melbourne, the farm and the tennis!!!
So I leave the farm tomorrow and travel west on the Great Ocean road should be fun wanna catch a ride??????
