My New Favorite Place!

Today, Todd and I drove down to Wilson’s Promontory. What a beautiful place! It is a park on the southern-most peninsula of the Australian mainland. The landscape is very cool and the beaches are amazing. The funniest one was called Squeaky Beach, where the sand honestly squeaks under your feet. The brochure says it is quartzite sand, and for some reason it makes a weird sound when you walk on it. Then we stopped at Shallow Inlet, where we drove way out into the straight because the tide was so low. Lastly, before we returned to our fantastic camp at Inverloch, we toured around the point at Venus Bay... where a kangaroo jumped across the road in front of our van when we were driving and I nearly stepped right on some sort of bluish-purply colored snake while we were hiking!
Not sure what’s on the agenda for tomorrow... still on my hit-list is driving the Great Ocean Road to the Twelve Apostles, and of course I’d really love to go to Tasmania. For now, we’re hanging here at Inverloch in hopes of wind. Cheers!
