It has been a while since our last caravan trip (actually it was over to Melbourne for the Footy Grand Final at the end of September in 2015) so we were very pleased to be on the road again.
Although we only have 3 weeks to get out and enjoy our break from the garden we are making the most of the somewhat unpredictable weather at the moment. We have packed our books, a couple of DVD’s we have had for a while but not yet watched and I have my sewing to be going on with.
Our first stop was Lake Towerrinning, a semi-freshwater lake north-west of Kojonup. The first day was fine and 29 deg. C when we set up but the forecast is not great for the next couple of days.
The Lakeside Camping Ground is on the south side of the 256 hectare lake which is on a working farm. It has powered and unpowered sites, toilets and showers but no drinking water for campers. Is very popular with water skiing, kayaking and the sandy beaches make it a family friendly inland swimming destination. It is school holidays here so it was quite busy with ski boats thundering past with kids on skis, tubes and knee boards, all screaming with excitement. I would imagine it is a little quieter outside of holidays and weekends.
Next we are off to Bremer Bay for about 5 days. Hopefully we get some reasonably good weather down there.
