    The Grampians

    March 20, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    We have spent a few days with relatives and we are now back on the road.

    Things have changed a great deal in a few days. We feel slightly removed from the whole event as we are not getting bombarded by constant messages about Covid19. Our niece, who has decided to quarantine her family, doesn’t think we are taking it seriously enough. Towns we travel through are certainly quieter. Campsites all have sites and cabins available. Different states are now going it alone with two states shutting their borders and others shutting schools which is against the federal government advice.

    In a few days time, if we continue to travel around, we may start feeling like social outcasts.

    I went out with Dale to deliver some straw, it’s the first time I’ve driven in a large lorry “King of the road”.

    Anyway, we are now in the Grampians and managed to get some washing done ✅. We are planning so spend a couple of days walking around this national park. There is hope that the weather will improve, having dropped from the 38C of last week.

    Showed Hilary the vid of the spider, OMG, not the reaction I was expecting... “If you think I’m going out there with these things in the bedroom your out of your mind!!!!”... a little harsh I feel 🤣

    A bit OTT. It was very friendly and quite harmless, just a big Huntsman spider.
