Nothing like a sleep-in to make you realise you’re on holidays. After driving 2100kms in the previous six days it was wonderful to not have to wake up early and hit the road. So after a late breakfast and a casual read of the news online we headed off for a walk at Mulambin Beach, the nearest beach about 300m away. After walking over a low lying dune here’s the view that greeted us.
As we had come in on the north end of the beach we headed south. Pretty quickly we heard a strange noise behind us. We turned around and saw a guy sitting in a low lying buggy with a sail above him.
It was a Kite Buggy Racer (or some parts of the world would say a Land Sailor). He would sail down the beach, turn around and go the other way to complete a circuit.
We watched him for a couple of circuits before resuming our walk. I had a new Nikon camera so I was happy to change settings and start with a few portrait snaps of Karen
and some of the driftwood
before switching to a landscape mode. Here are a couple more photos I took as we made our way down the beach.
When we came to the end of the sandy stretch of beach we did a bit of rock scrambling before leaving the beach. We saw another caravan park and a small housing estate but no café. We hadn’t been sure how long the walk would be and we hadn’t carried a water bottle and hoped to buy a drink but that wasn’t possible. So we walked along a shared trail through the housing estate and eventually made it back to our caravan park having walked just over 4kms. By now it was early afternoon so after having a drink we prepared lunch and ate outside under our caravan awning. A new caravan arrived and after they had set up we had a chat with our new neighbours. They were also from Victoria and lived about 45 minutes from where we do. As the afternoon progressed we relaxed and read for a while before cooking up dinner on the communal barbecue. It had been a very enjoyable, relaxing day.
