January 2021

Weird Summer in Southern Australia. We only had a few hot days. Still such a beautiful place to live.

We visited Wye River on the Great Ocean Road on Jan 9. So many koalas just hanging about.

I slept in the swag. Below was my view from bed

I got up for a leak just before dawn. This view was worth it, but straight back to bed.

Back to cold Summer the following week. I went for a walk up a local hill.

Back to warm weather for the last week. Off to a local Botanic gardens for a birthday party. Early settlers found Australian native plants distasteful, and missed their deciduous forests of Europe. Many of these plantations still exist despite the hot and dry conditions. This is an oak forest in Kyneton.
