Day 62 - Warrnambool to Mt Gambier
A thick sea mist has now descended, the sea glimpses that we had from our balcony yesterday are no longer, in fact we can only see just beyond the balcony. It did clear for a while and we thought we were in for another perfect day but no in it rolled again just as we were leaving. Cleared again further along the coast but then the clouds came. We didn't stop on our journey from Warrnambool to Mt. Gambier as there wasn't much to see other than a quick pit stop at Port Fairy to see where we would have stayed had it not been the weekend of their Folk Festival and all accommodation already booked a long time in advance. It's a pretty place and it would have been nice to stay there but it wasn't to be. The mist lifted for a while whilst we were there so we could take a few photos of the wharf in the sunshine which was nice. Arrived at Mt Gambier at lunch time and after a bit of a detour found The Barn which is actually about 6km outside the town. After checking in we drove back into town and visited the Blue Lake so named as from November to March it develops a wonderful deep blue colour and then in late March it returns to it's normal grey colour - how weird is that. By the time we had got back to our room the temperature had dropped so much with the strong wind that had developed we had to put the heating on; and here were we hoping to have our drinks on the beautiful sunny patio outside our room. Now at 7pm the sun has come out again - I tell you his country's weather systems are almost as weird as ours and not what we expected at all.Eating at their famed steak restaurant tonight where the steak is matured for 60-90 days so hopefully should be good.
