Love Travel, Love Life
We have been doing a bit more tripping around. This time to the southern coastlines of NSW and Victoria.
We have a “Travelander” which is kind of a tent on the back of a truck thingy. We have our own shower, cooking facilities, pantry, queen size bed and a few other extras to make camping a pleasure. On the back of our Travelander when it is folded up is a sticker which reads, “Love Travel, Love Life” – and that is just what we have been doing.

Could this be an “I Love Australia” red onion??? See the little heart above and then the little Australia below?
Sorry Tassie this onion has inadvertently put you in the centre of Australia but I guess that is better than being left off altogether!
At one isolated beach on the Southern NSW coast we bumped into an American couple. They come to Australia every year to visit friends and see more of our great country. The main thing that keeps them coming back is the Australian people. They love us!!! Another thing they enjoyed whilst travelling around our country was ‘the critters’. So here, my friends, are just some of the wondrous ‘critters’ we bumped into over the past month.
Lots of these wallabys sighted at Mann River reserve, NSW
Cute, very fat, wombat at Tidal River, Wilson’s Promontory, Victoria. He didn’t like the flash photography much, but these little fellows only prowl around in the dark. This is the very first time I have ever seen a wombat in the flesh!!
Lots of birdlife, both coastal birds and inland birds. Always hard to photograph!!
One very cheeky kookaburra (luckily the camp oven was cold!!) One very watchful currawong.
This guy was HUGE. A yellow tailed black cockatoo – taken at Bundanoon in the Morton National Park
The magnificent crimson rosella photographed at Tidal River.
The usual assortment of water birds, but I couldn’t help loving this little cutie – the crested tern. His hair was all fluffed up!!
Can you see the camel here?? This is Camel Rock beach just near Bermagui NSW.
My camera is just a little point and shoot thus some of the zoom in photos are a bit fuzzy. Other than that it takes a reasonable photo – Nikon Coolpix S6300.
Here is Lilian about to go out onto the hockey field. The littlies look so cute running around chasing a little white ball.
Until next time (when I hope to have some crafty/sewing stuff to show you)
