It's been a while since I've been here, mostly due to linux teething problems, I can't even count the times I've had to re-install the damn thing. And not been camping not so much due to the winter-ness but as much due to not getting the time to get away. Now we're finally off again. My 15 year old daughter has been bugging me about it for a while and we missed out last school holidays so we're off this time, avoiding the weekend we'll go for two nights starting early tomorrow. We're off most likely to Cumberland River Reserve just past Lorne. I am still desperate to find the kids some live starfish to see rockpooling, and maybe even a small octopus like I got the chance to while I was a kid. I tried Sorrento back beach last summer but all the rocks had to display there were a few tiny little crabs. I'm also taking my three year old for the first time, she's been asking to go camping for ages too so now's the time! The weather isn't looking great but we've got the gear to stay dry and warm and kids don't mind a bit of rain as a rule so I'm really looking forward to getting back out there.
