    Beware of the feral animals around here..........they'll steal your beer and tucker when your not looking. A sharp blow between the eyes usually sorts em out.

    After pissing around on the sand all day I wanted to have a fish. Chucked a line in late afternoon and relaxed on the beach. We were joined by a whale and what looked to be her calf. They played around close to shore for a while but I had a hard time trying to get a pic. All I got was a fin (centre of pic).

    A great couple of days......and the best thing.....we were the only ones in the Thurra River camp and we did'nt pass one vehicle the whole time we were out riding.......gotta love that......:1drink

    Great pics of far east Gippsland, the cook up looks 5 star.
    Its a bloody shame about the feral animal getting in to your beer and meat.
