I didn’t get much time of work this Christmas Holiday break. I still really wanted to get away for a few days, and take a road trip with Cooper. I wanted to go somewhere that we hadn’t traveled to before. After looking at what was available around Vicoria (Australia) I decided on Lakes Entrance. A Sleepy town, situated on the edge of Ninety Mile Beach where the Gippsland Lakes meets the Southern Ocean. I booked a Motel for us on the Main Street a few days ago.
I haven’t taken a long Road trip before, I have traveled in the car with people and convoyed with people on 2-3 hrs trips in the past. This was the first time on a long trip on my own. I planned how we would get there and aimed to stop half way for lunch and a stretch our legs break. Maps showed that the trip would take about 4 hours, with our Lunch Stop, I was expecting 4 1/2 hrs.
We stopped at the Moe Subway Store on the way for our Lunch Break. Other than some Road Works the drive was relatively uneventful. We arrived at our Motel which is called ‘Bellevue on the Lakes’. I felt pretty tired from the long drive and once we had checked in we had a little rest. Well to be truthful, I had a rest and Cooper played with the Camera.. as you can see from the picture.
We went down to the local chinese shop to buy some takeaway, which we ate in the room, watching a movie in bed. I must admit, Today was a great day!
