Monday 16th March - Mount Gambier to BeachportA cold 6.1 last night and upto 19.8 during the day. A pleasant day to travel as we only have about 80km to go today. We left about 10.30am to head to Beachport. Along the way Clive takes a turn off to the Tantanoola Caves. These limestone caves are meant to be wheelchair friendly. Well they are! It's mainly one big cavern, so it was easy for me as I just sat on the wheelie walker and took photos from where I was. I could have taken the paths and went around, but they were wet and I was afraid of slipping - not worth the risk. The guide gave us a talk for about 10 minutes and then left us to our own devices to snap away as we wanted. Clive enjoyed walking around taking pictures with his SLR camera. After about 20 minutes we let ourselves out to continue our journey. Back in the car and the trip to Beachport continues. We arrived at the Southern Ocean Tourist Park and were told we could park up anywhere we wanted. This is a big park and seems nice and quiet. As there is plenty of vacant spaces. But you can imagine this in the peak season when it would be full. There would be lots of people everywhere as there are good fishing spots around and there is plenty to do for all ages.
Sunday 15th March - GeelongIt's a little warmer today as it was only down to 12.3 last night and upto 18.1 today. Clive rang his aunt who turned 80 today. He had a good chat with her and hopes to catch up when we finally get to Adelaide. Apart from that it was a lazy day for us both, although Clive went to 11am Mass in the morning at St. Paul's.
