Today we woke to a very grey dull day in Colac and it had been raining last night and this morning it was a very light misty rain from Colac to Camperdown and then the showery weather stopped for the rest of the way to Yambuk.
We left around 9.30am and stopped off at Warrnambool for some bread and a few bits and pieces as well as a top up for fuel.
A few caravaners going in the opposite direction to us but otherwise the traffic wasn't heavy. There was a very strong southerly wind (tending from the west) today and when we got to Yambuk just on lunch it was blowing a gale! It was still grey and cold.
Set up the tent in the unpowered section which is on a slope but the tent is pretty flat! We have a sensational view of Yambuk lake and are a little closer to the water compared to where the powered sites are ...
there are quite a few spots to launch from and if you look at the kayaks you can see they are angling to the right - we didn't put them in like that - the wind is blowing left to right (of the photo) and is pushing them that way and so the waves on the lake are also flowing left to right.
it is not far to the river mouth and the tide is out as there is sand between us and the ocean!
on the way back you get a good view of the look out and giant slide - this slide is quite popular and every now and then you get a disturbance of the peace and tranquility when someone goes down it!
We can see the giant windmills from the campsite but you are even closer to them when you pass by them on the lake ...
tomorrow we are here and will try to make it to Eumeralla river - I think the wind is here for the rest of the week!
