so, Christmas was fast approaching... that meant a trip to Melbourne to see mum...

got the barkbusters sorted and hard-wired in the GPS

i had the knobs on the bike already, i didnt have panniers sorted yet... was suposed to have... but didnt....

so... it was gonna be a 'tie shit on the back trip'....




fueled up me and the bike in Mount Gambier and then headed east along the coast...thru nelson then off into the pine forrests...



fairly sandy tracks in these forrests...



i'd been running 40 psi in the TKC's to try conserve them on the highway... but once i got in here it was obvious some air needed to go...



it was nice to be 'out n about' again...



eventually i was out of the pines... then it was a trip down to Cape Bridgewater....never been there before...nice little place...

stopped at a spot called 'bishops rocks' (i think )





and since it was a hot day i climbed down and went for a quick swin to cool off...



then hit the dirt again and headed towards Cape Nelson... a few tracks dont go anywhere anymore due to new wind farms in the area...




ended up finding my way down to the lighhouse...

you can rent the old lighhouse keepers house...



all kept in really good condition...



figures there was a good view of the sea from here too...


anyway time was getting on, so back on the bike again...




past this guy.....




past more windmills..




by-passed Portland and hit the main road around to Port Fairy... checked into the YHA, went got some crap japanesse take-away.....

got a couple of nice cold take-ways from here...




and had a stickynose in a few shop windows on my way back to the hostel to eat drink and have a merry old sleep (after watching a soccer match and having a chat to a girl in Adelaide about some 'plans'...



tomorrow was due to be a day in the Otway ranges.......
