Saturday 16th April
Had a very early start, got to Kate’s at 4.30 am and we headed to the airport, Brisbane. Had a good flight. Got sorted at the arrival as we had foods to declare, was no problems and then went and picked up the hire car. Once out on the freeway OMG, bumper to bumper for 5 km just getting out of the area, once on the Princess Highway all was good. Called into Lorne and got some food items for lunch to have at Kate’s Grandma’s, we chattered and had lunch together then headed off at 3 pm to get to Apollo Bay, called into the information Center to get pamphlets on places and things to do and read up on them. We got to our cabin feeling tired and unloaded the car, had a cuppa, then got organised. Bit chilly after our Qld climate, 10 deg but fine. Bed at 9 pm.
