Monday 13th March day 87 of trip

Pretty quiet day, caught up with washing etc, shopping. Some fungi in the resort.

 Catching up with some computer work.

Off we go in the rain. Beauchamp Falls

Wednesday 20th April.

8.15 am, weather looking cloudy and wet but we are heading up to Beauchamp falls, we ended up spending all day. Getting down to the falls was very steep but we just took our time and there was lots of fungi along the way. We had black wheelie bin rubbish bags to lay in the wet on and plastic bags for the camera’s.

Beachchamp Falls, Really worth the walk down to these falls. Beauchamp Falls in the Otway’s Victoria.

Small Fungi These fungi are so tiny and it was raining, I was doing Macro shooting and all of a sudden my camera say’s error and my macro had a big problem, so I started using one of my other lens and just got in as close as I could, but it’s ok now, after lots of money spent on the macro lens.

Forest Walk. At the bottom of the hill, the stream and waterfall is just around the corner, it was so beautiful down in this forest.

The Tiki-touring starts.

Sunday 17th April

Had a real good sleep and woke nice and early so got up and then saw it was only 4.30 am so actually went back to bed for couple of hours, bed very hard. Up now 7.30 am just took our time and had breakfast, packed our lunch, Thermos and headed off at 10.30 am for Forrest, there are some water falls up there.

Stevenson's Falls. Stevenson Falls is a pretty waterfall nestled deep in the Colac Otway Region near the town of Barramunga. What a lovely drive up to this spot, the walk was easy and Fungi along the way, so many different types, the sun has been out today so that’s a real bonus. We were going to go to Sabine Falls but it was 3.30 pm and we as it was a 5 hour walk down to the falls gave it a miss today, so headed back to Apollo Bay, getting pretty cold now. We had tea and made extra so the leftovers would be our lunch for tomorrow.

Early Start, Plane Flight.

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.

Fungi, Ottaways One of the many wee Fungi’s along the tracks. This is about the height of your little finger.
