Lerderderg National Park

The 3rd day of our trip around victoria with our ohhhh so great car, from which I sometimes don't feel like getting out of. lol was on dry land. We visited Lerderderg National park in Blackwood, vic. This park offered a bit of everything....lots of dry, bit of wet, heaps of bumpy roads....and endless roads that just took us around and around the park, looking for a way out. After finding out way out, we rewarded ourselves with a low fat, healthy hamburger :)

Hope you enjoy the photos :)

North Shore Geelong

Well finally a moment to write to you all and show you some of the things we have been doing.

After picking up our rental car (which is better then anything I have ever driven in ) we decided to start our trips with a place not to far from home.... in Australia of course an hour or more from home is still close to home :). Even though I have been to Geelong often in my childhood, the Northshore is an area I haven't never visited before, so was interesting to see. Never quite realised we had an oil refinery so close. Can't say I was very impressed.... well at least my nose was not impressed with the smells that I was not able to capture with these pictures. :)

Hope you enjoy the pictures :)

We have landed :)

We have landed :) And what a beautiful time to land it was, short after sunset, as the picture shows.

I wish I could say that our trip was totally uneventful (just as dear hubby wishes it to be) but it seems the harder I try, the likelier the chance I will muck it up and cause some kind of drama to start the holiday off with. Well why should this time be different. LOL The whole morning, while packing my hand luggage, I kept reminding myself *don't forget the camera......!!!* And what do I do ?? I walk out the door to the busstop and just as I get there, what do I remember??? *I FORGOT MY CAMERA*!!!! I seriously don't know who was more shocked....!!! Me - for suddenly realising I had forgotten my camera, or my husband, who especially want to leave earlier to avoid stress, watching me running back to the house, and risking missing the bus for my camera! But at that moment I had only one thought, I can't go without my camera... time enough to run back.

Well I made it back in time, wheezing, huffing and puffing like an old Swiss steam train (hey, believe me I have no condition to brag about LOL ) and then panic attack..... *WHERE WAS HE??*. I thought, *Sheesh,I have missed the bus and he has seriously gone without me*!!! But it was payback time. He was hidden behind the busstop wall.

I am laughing about it now... he still isn't! LOL

But we made it, and now it's holiday time :)
