otways camping

We just had two days of much, much-needed time in the bush! There was: lovely, soothing rain, walks in the Otways rainforest and at Johanna Beach and Blanket Bay, campfires, sandwiches toasted on said fires, rock-and-shell-collecting, time for those long, rambling conversations that only happen on a long drive somewhere, breakfasting with wallabies, laughter, tears, music and other good things. I need to keep reminding myself how good for the soul camping is, especially during this last year when life has been engrossing and tough.

I also had a very brief play with my new camera- a big thanks to my friend Matt for deciding to upgrade and pass his Nikon d80 to me. Now I really have to spend some time learning how to get out of auto mode this year. We saw a whole lot of koalas down there, doing what they do most of the time- eating, scratching and sleeping! Even Australians don’t tend to get over the cuteness of these little fellas and it seemed like a good time to try the new camera.
