Camping Reflections Holiday Park Eden, ein Walfängerstädtchen an der Tasmanischen See.
Hallo Freunde und Familie, es gestaltet sich schwierig hier regelmäßig ins Internet zu gelangen, da das WLAN auf den Campingplätzen deutlich zu wünschen übrig lässt. So bleibt uns nichts anderes übrig als Urlaub zu machen und die Natur zu genießen. :)
Bis jetzt eine ca. 1,5 m lange Diamant-Python, wie wir lernten, gesehen und unspektakulär fotografiert. Eidechsen, Salamander, oder was auch immer gibt es hier zu hauf. Sind teilweise auch garnicht mal so klein. Tina wurde bereits von einer Spinne gezwungen auf die Männertoilette auzuweichen und verdammt Vitali zum fronbegleitdienst mit Taschenlampe.
Viele tolle Strände und Nationalparks gesehen. Wir werden jeden Morgen von paradiesischem Vogelgezwitscher geweckt. Einer klingt sogar fast wie der Spotttölpel (Tribute von Panem). Camper ist bis dato eine hervorragende Wahl.Read more
So far we have had beautiful weather in Eden with the temperatures significantly improved from Lakes Entrance. Yesterday was a day of discovery we biked around Lake Curalo which is bit like an estuary. Obviously there has been no rain and the lake entrance was closed to the sea. It made things a little smelly and a whole pile of dead fish where the water had obviously become way too salty.
We then walked into the town which was a bit of an uphill climb and especially warm when the sea breeze disappeared. Not a hugely exciting little town and almost completely over run by visitors. In the afternoon I had my first swim of the holiday in the sea which was much warmer than I anticipated.
We raised a gin to my Dad who would have been 80 yesterday and had a good catch up with Mum on the phone. The humidity was up so was a lovely night to go out to the beach to check out the stars in the dark.
Today we did a beach walk before breakfast . We discovered yesterday lovely Melbourne friends Del and Pete happened to be staying just up the road in Merimbula and were able to come for lunch. Such a bonus to be able to spend some time with them and a perfect holiday lunch, couple of bottles of wine and delicious nibbles.
A storm came in while Del and Pete were here which cooled things off and gave us the perfect excuse for a little afternoon nap after they left, we have totally slipped into holiday mode.Read more
A more relaxing day at Eden Reflections campground. Considering it is a big camp and full it is really quiet after 10pm. Wakeup call is provided by the cockys about 6am. They are big birds swooping and arguing with one another. The Australian birdlife always stops us in our tracks to view. So many parrot varieties.
Decided a trip up the coast without caravan would be good so went to Merimbula for coffee with our friend Del. The town was packed with people so we were glad to get back to our more relaxed and less populated Eden. Merimbula is known for being a perfect environment to growing oysters.
A final swim in the sea with the breakers crashing in, such a good beach to go swimming (4 gentle swells to every wave that gives you some excitement). A walk after dinner through two other campgrounds and then back at camp for the last nightRead more
