Carol in Oz - Robe

Our next port of call was Robe in South Australia. We weren't away too early from Port Fairy.

I think the hour lost to daylight savings made it harder to get up for some of us. I didnt sleep particularly well in a single bed on casters that rolled away from the wall every time i turned over. I was wide awake at 5.30 and eventually just got up and went for my morning walk on the beach. Its beautiful in the morning light with it all but desserted.

On the way to Robe we stopped first to check out the Umpherston Sinkhole which contains a lovely gatden inside. There were bee hives on the walls and we even saw a possum clinging to the rock walls. Thanks Anthony, for telling me about it.

Next was a look at Mount Gambier's Blue Lake.  Not yet turned the bright blue it is known for but still blue enough.  We had lunch in a cafe, sitting outside.

By the time we reached Robe it had been a long day but we drove up to view the obelisk as suggested by the girl at check in. We got chatting to a nice couple with a young Rhodesian Ridgeback. It was an hour before we returned to our little apartment for a cheese, veggie and cracker dinner.
