A Casual Day Along the Coast

Jim and I spent the day driving along the Coast between Wilsons Promontory and Phillip Island. We drove the back roads and went to beaches, bays, a lighthouse and great overlooks. The weather was perfect~sunny, with a few fair-weather clouds, no wind and temps climbing to 23 C. One highlight today was seeing an echidna! Echidnas are unique to Australia and they remind me of porcupines. They are another elusive (a word I misspelled yesterday, sorry!) creature that up until today we’d only seen dead on the side of the road.

First I am going to show you a few of my photos from yesterday. Today’s pics will follow.
