Peace in Blairgowrie, Victoria

Thetraveljunkie.org – Life has been pretty damn good. In Blairgowrie, we’ve been hanging out at the beach a lot. I was utterly intoxicated by all the colours around me. The sky and ocean. The sparkly water. The seaweed. Laughter, smiling and playing wonderfully. Beach finska. Beach drone. Chicos. Cherry ripe. Sandy beach towels. Chips and dips.

Walk Along the Fort Nepean

Thetraveljunkie.org – The last few days have been stunning. Bright blue skies and glowing sunshine. We soak up some vitamin D and we went for a walk along the Point Nepean National Park. Located at the very end of the peninsula. Just strolling and talking. It was very cool. Especially the history. Fort Nepean was a critical part of Victoria’s defences from the 1880s until 1945. The first shot of the British Empire in WWI and the first Australian shots of World War II were fired from Fort Nepean, earning its entry in military history. These battlements were modified and used right up until the end of World War II.
