Amazingly we managed to leave at 9.30 after taking the obligatory ‘setting off’ photos.
Music today was bought to us by Bruce Springsteen (of course), and we were tempted to stop in and hide at Hanging Rock to see him. Knowing our luck though Sam would have got lost – so no picnic at Hanging Rock for us today.
The kids have settled into driving. Lots of colouring in and drawing pictures.
Stopped at Inglewood for lunch. Despite the theme music from the movie Deliverence featuring high in our thoughts we had what the kids declared as the best sausage rolls ever, for lunch.
Some of you may wonder why Patchewollock, and where is it?
My friend Anna from university grew up there and I visited there many times during those years. On the way there the kids asked me to tell stories about previous visits – camping out on the sand dunes called Snowdrift, getting camel chariots bogged in the middle of the night, helping build the drop log lodge were a few of the G/PG rated stories I could retell. Pine Plains is surrounded by Wyperfield National Park in the north east of Victoria.
Anna, her husband Paul and their 2 kids William and Rose live in Hong Kong but fortunately were back visiting her mum for Easter. Along with 5 out of her 8 sibings, and their kids, chuck a few cousins and second cousins in and it definitely was a full house, and lodge. Lucky we bring our own beds. A nice easy start to camping: dinner and a few beers with old friends.
