Monday 8th February 2016.....yes a WATERFALL!!!!


Last night I turned off the ceiling fan and with the windows open had a great nights sleep..the cabin does not have air con but that suits me fine with a ceiling fan in every room it is quite comfortable...the mornings are a bit cooler and nice to have breakfast outside before the heat of the day starts...I just make sure I have sunscreen on and lots to drink when I am out.
The Internet stick works just fine I do a lot of work off line like e mails and writing the blog, editing the photos and then copy and paste when I plug in the stick...I do not know how to check how much space I have used... will be interesting to see how long this works before I have to top off.
I was on the road by 10am and this sign is on the outskirts of town


I had planned a driving day with a couple of short hikes but first I stopped in at the Local Visitors centre to see if they had an update of the young man who fell yesterday..they told me that he had been flown to Melbourne where he was in stable condition with some broken bones so that is good news as it could have been fatal!!!
I first drove to this great look out.....with a different view across to the lake.




Back in the car and another 10 minutes drive to the waterfall!!!!







This waterfall is dam fed so it runs all the time it was quite lovely and refreshing to be at the base of the falls and having lunch with a small and cooling spray from the falls washing over me.








The last stop was another great view and this is the stupid photo of the day!!!
A perfect gentleman with his lady on the outside!!!

I tried to talk to them after they came down I would not normally say anything but with yesterday's events firmly planted in my mind I did and I stopped and walked away after a few seconds as it was totally obvious they were obnoxious and rude and uncaring......

This is the way the photograph should be!!!



It was a good day and I was home by 3pm and I relaxed did some route planning for the next few weeks.....
The plan is to leave here on Thursday and drive about 100km to the town of Ballarat and stay there one night, already have a place booked and Friday drive into Melbourne where I also have a place booked for two nights as on Saturday afternoon I am going to a concert which will I know be fantastic(not telling you what just yet) and in the evening going to a Professional soccer game between the two Melbourne sides, should be a fun evening.....Sunday I leave and I am going to drive the coastal route up to Sydney where I fly out on the 28th February to Brisbane where I have a house sit opportunity for 10 days......so you can see lots to study and research.

Had a nice light supper salad and a fresh meat pie followed by another Mexican shower and after I write this going to watch a movie!!!!

Yashi Kochi!!!!

What a horrible thing to see, very glad the young man will survive. Hope he learned something from it. Some people just have no sense.
Keep save on your travels.we have been loving our time in San Miguel. However the hill up to Azteca can be a bit of a workout!
