Dinosaur Sand Sculptures

Today I paid a visit to the sand sculptures on the Frankston foreshore. A yearly event, the theme this year was "Dino Story." these 2 metre high sculptures are quite impressive and well worth a visit.
The most surprising dinosaur ... The Qantasaurus, if that isn't taking commercialism to a new level, just name a dinosaur (that you helped transport).

Waratah Bay

We visited some friends down in Waratah Bay near Wilsons Promontory for a day. We went for a 3km walk from Waratah Bay down the beach with the wind behind us to "The Gap" where this photo is taken. The walk back wasn't so easy ...

This is also my first post from my mobile "phone", at least the photo is, I have added the text later. The photo and post appeared on this blog just a minute or so after it was taken. More to come ...

New Year's @ Jerusalem Creek

Happy New Year!

Just after Christmas four of us went on a short camping trip at Jerusalem Creek near Eildon for a few days over New Year. The lake is still fairly low as you can see from the photo below. When the lake is full much of the area around the creek we stayed at is flooded, but since the water has been low for so long you would hardly know.

Here are the Snobs Creek Falls.

Also at the falls looking back towards the Goulburn Valley downstream of Lake Eildon.

On the last day we went for a good hike from our camp ground up to the top of the pinnacle which my fiancee is pointing out after coming back from the walk.
