Day 138 - Thursday 20 September 2012

Kingston SE to Warrnambool

We were up early and on the road for our 340 kms trip from Kingston SE to Warrnambool. We stopped at Millicent for papers and some bread rolls for lunch and continued on to Dartmoor for a lunch break. One of the attractions at Dartmoor is the World War I Avenue of Honour Memorial Carvings, that are carved from some old cedars that were planted at the end of WW1. After lunch we continued on towards Warrnambool, but made a detour into Port Fairy to see whether any whales were still in the bay - but no luck.

After arriving at Warrnambool's Fig Tree Caravan Park we set up on a drive through site for one night - we did not bother to unhitch the van so will be able to get away fairly early tomorrow. Shortly after we had set up the van on our site David and Sally from Tassie drove past - we had not seen them since Broome when they were travelling with Nick and Christine Tall. Later on Daryl Lyons (Yablett to you Minihashers) arrived to say hello - he is on milking duties at his sister's farm just outside Warrnambool. After a couple of beers we went to Logans Cafe Restauraunt for an excellent meal. Daryl is hoping that he and Janine will be able to come over and have a look at Tassie some time next year.
