THE PROM

Australia has been in the grip of a drought for about 7 years now.... Well until we came that is.
We went to my absolute favouritest spot in the whole world, Wilson's Promontory National Park.
To quote from their website...." The southernmost point of the Australian mainland, Wilsons Promontory (affectionately known to Victorians as 'the Prom') is arguably the most loved national park in Victoria. Its 130 km coastline is framed by granite headlands, mountains, forests and fern gullies. Tidal River, 30 km inside the park boundary, is the focus for tourism and recreation. The park contains the largest coastal wilderness area in Victoria."
After a few days the rain abated a bit, just enough to get out of the car and take some photos to make you all envious....
This is the view from our balcony at the Wilson's Promontory Retreat...which Roxi managed to book for the weekend before Christmas. Thanks Roxi. It finally felt like we were on holiday. The rain was actually good because it made us stay in and do nothing....well nothing but Yarnuff that is. There is some weird phenomenon happening here in the southern hemisphere which means everyone except Ricardo is winning. Maybe he should buy a lottery ticket here seeing as that never ever wins in the UK.
Phew, knackered now....too many Tim Tams. Those Canadians just can't keep up with all those new varieties.

We also are in a food stupor. More of a "one too many prawn" stupor really.
