Hi,
Just on 1200 Klms since leaving Moruya.
Highlights of this week have been:
Fresh fish at Port Franklin bought of the fishing boats as they returned.
Camping on tennis courts in Welshpool. To windy to go on.
Staying in a 5 star guest house in Inverlock as the guest of the owner who had just ridden from Perth.
Stayed for 2 nights at Walkerville near Cape Liptrap. Great walks and overlooks Wilson Prom once again swam in the very cold ocean.
The rail trail from Foster to Fish Creek and from Wonthagi to Anderson.
Meeting the Gwyynes of Moruya at Cape Patterson for lunch at the surf club where we ended up camping.  
Camping on the cliffs at Kilcunda in heavy winds and cooking a curry whilst holding the stove down but what a curry.
Arriving in Philip Island with a tail wind for 30 plus Klms.
The views around this area are some thing to see.
Will now do 2 ferry trips to the start of the Great Ocean Road and then around to Melbourne before crossing to Tasmania.
We have no problems with the bikes or joints etc and we are becoming very good at cooking nice meals on the Trangia stove.
Mostly fresh veggies etc and now that we do not have the distances between towns we can be a little bit more choosy.
Barbara of coarse insists that I carry the wine for her.
All in all we are very happy and enjoying the trip.
 Regards to you all.
Peter and Barbara
