Lakes Entrance

The threat of what appeared to be a huge bushfire made us a bit nervous on the drive to Lakes Entrance. Thankfully we didn't have to get too close. The highlight of our stay here was the boat trip we took. These cute little boats were available for hire and after no success fishing from the beach, we were sure we would fill a bucket with fish from the boat. Well.... we did have a great time cruising ;) We didn't really explore much at Lakes Entrance- it may be becoming apparent from recent blog entries that we are getting a little bit travel weary. We are enjoying opportunities to just relax by the ocean rather than doing too much of the exploring and sight seeing that we were so keen to do 4 weeks ago. Campbell is quite homesick and is counting down the days until he gets home to his own bedroom. As reluctant as Eric and I are to get back to our very busy reality, the novelty of camping does lose it's shine eventually. Our visit to Lakes Entrance will be fondly remembered by us all despite our lack of adventure. We all loved our boat trip, the Mexican dinner we had one night we were there (I will especially remember that delicious glass of Sangria), the hilarious neighbours (Pugsley Snr and Pugsley Jnr) and the cleanest caravan park we have ever seen. My goodness that place had rules for EVERYTHING but it was such a gorgeously clean bathroom (see you can hear my camping weariness). The rules for the pool alone had about 20 bullet points on the list!! Our short but sweet visit brings us closer to the end of our holiday.




Oh Yes! Those hot fudge sundaes may be fondly remembered too .

  1. OK, now you do know that on a holiday it is ok to do NOTHING? I can hear your protestations, I just wanted to let you know that millions of people go way to exciting places and do NOTHING all the time!!!!

    1. I know!!! Who'd have thought it possible...or fun!!! The tent actually becomes a home away form home and when we have a night in 'real' accommodation none of us can sleep.
