Along a country back road near Castlemaine
It has been quite warm again so I am looking for a powered site so I can turn on my aircon to keep cool. I find the place at the end of town near the local swimming pool. Castlemaine is much smaller than Ballarat, just a country town, really, but offers a few walks around the vicinity. ( More about Castlemaine..)
I plug in and turn on my aircon but a couple of hours later the temperature drops significantly, so its time to open the windows instead, chat with my neighbors and later a hot shower.
In the morning, its now Sunday, I drive on to a campsite by the Lanecoorie River, that is located about 50km north west of Castlemaine. It turns out very nice indeed, a few caravans in situ already, mostly people that have been there already for quite some time as I find out later. There is also a lot of beer drinking going on that I do not want to take part in, so I return to my Motorhome and cook a nice Pasta Sauce to have for dinner instead. Beautiful by the river, however, later on a strong wind kicks up a lot of dust, covering my vehicle, even though I have all windows closed. I decide to move my vehicle upwind, of the area where the dust is being picked up. Problem solved.
Camping by the Lanecoorie River
I leave early next morning to return to Ballarat, as I have booked in my vehicle at the Ford Service for an oil change and Filter replacement for Tuesday 8.00am.
