Swift’s Creek

A drive in the rain today.  Autumn colors are almost gone now, but still a very pretty, if somewhat scary drive up.

Lunch at Creekers Cafe – yummy egg and bacon roll and very nice coffee.  An interesting little place.

Reflective Water

Visit to Lake Tyers today – the water is getting very low, and showing that it really is little more than flood plains in this area.  Boats are still coming and going from the ramp, but it must be very easy to run aground.

Fabulous still water makes for great reflections.

The Nicholson river was equally good for photography

The birds were very comfortable drying their wings and sunning themselves on the pontoon.

And some of the local boaties were having a BBQ at Johnsonville.

Mount Raymond Expedition May 16 2016

Nice day today, so we set off for lunch in Orbost, to our usual haunt “Chooky’s” – Egg and Bacon rolls to die for!!  Definitely worth the drive just for that!  Main street Orbost, you can’t miss it – it will be the one with all the people around!  Very friendly, welcoming staff,  pleasant surroundings and excellent food and coffee.  Fast service too!

Leaving Orbost we headed up to Mount Raymond

And a short drive up some 4 x 4 tracks and we arrive at the top of Mount Raymond, at the Comms tower.  Spectacular views all round!

Very friendly people, lovely coffee and fantastic atmosphere – a real old fashioned General Store with lots to see!  Highly recommend you visit this one!
