Carcoar Dam

Bit of an unusual post, not really a holiday, just a couple of days off.  The family is at home and it’s just me taking a break after working a few recent weekends.

I finished the pharmacy move here in Orange last night, so I don’t need to head back in there this morning.  There is a dam south of here that I want to go to, so I’m in not in any super rush to get going this morning.  Speaking of morning, like yesterday is damn fresh, with close to 0° overnight.

Day 22 to 24 – The Road home


I wake around 1.  It seems calmer again, or is that maybe more the case that I’m getting used to it?   Wake again at 3:30, we’re already inside the bay.

Up at 4:30 to beat the rush.  After getting ready I go out on deck, expecting cold and windy, I get nether.  It’s actually warm.   Port Philip Bay is a millpond, I don’t recall ever seeing a body of water this big, this calm.

Day 6 – Swimcart Camp Loop

Overnight, we’ve left the windows open a bit.  I wake just before 6 and get a quick photo of the sunrise.  With cloud cover on the horizon, we don’t actually see it rise till closer to 6:45.

Whilst it’s nice & warm in bed, if I had the heater remote I would have switched it on.  Around 7, I get up, grab a coffee and head outside.  Wow what a difference, outside in the sun with hardly any wind, it’s beautiful, really warm.

Day 4 – Launceston to Anson’s Bay

Well I’m not sure you could get two different nights.  It was so warm overnight I though we might have somehow turned the heater on.  When we wake up it’s close to 20°

Up just after 7, and while we’re in no rush, it does take us ages to get ready.   We take the opportunity to fill the tanks up and we’re not out of the campground till after 10.

Home to Waygunyah

A restless sleep, and when I look up my clock reads 5:30, Argh!   A short while later Justine’s reads 6:37. What the!  Then I look at mine again, 5:37, damn you daylight savings!!!!

I’m not going to get back to sleep, so by 6 (correct time) I’m up.  We got most of the van finished yesterday and we even hitched up, so a few last-minute things I say goodbye and by 7:30 I’m off.
