Australia 2008 Pt 2

I woke late for me. Barrie made breakfast. We first went down to the jetty where a car had gone over the cliff during the night. Seems the whole town was out looking. We then parked at the local gold club and walked down to the beach where we looked for a geocache. The beach was the site of the original mineral spa of Clifton Spring. We saw lots of remnants including beach glass. The hills were covered with oxalis. We scrambled up a hill because stupid me didn’t notice that the cache was a terrain 3.

We went to the winery for a wine tasting and lunch while Joy worked on the winery’s printer. She joined us for the main course. I had scallops wrapped in prosciutto and a fillet with beets.

Later we went to Port Arlington to take fabric to Pinkaboo where Joy picked out a bag to be covered to take to her son’s wedding. We looked for another cache, but didn’t find it. We had themomix treats for supper.

My friend Joy and I went geocaching on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne. We found it!

I put a bunch of pictures up on Flickr and will label them later.

Phil's Birthday

We began on Friday with a canoe trip on Lake Blue Ridge. Saturday included a geocache adventure and a "reventure" into the forest -- fording streams with the car and getting lost.
All ended with as usual cake and champagne.
