Road trip: day 1
Deciding to take the scenic route via the Princes Highway, we followed the coast South towards Gippsland. The plan was to reach Lakes Entrance, some 550km away.
The weather was glorious, as was the scenery along the way.
200 km of National Park between Eden and Orbost with nothing but trees and a road. Dusk came all too soon, by which time the inadequacy of the car’s head lights became apparent. Luckily, we caught up with a truck which could clear the way for us.
Exhausted and sore, we finally reached Lakes Entrance and pulled up at the first available motel. Getting one’s priorities straight, it was high time to make a cup of coffee… then have a shower.
