I thought I'd take you on a pictorial tour of our spur-of-the-moment pre-Christmas escape! A friend discovered a fabulous camping ground in the St Arnaud Range State Park - so well set up with cleared areas and small, well-constructed campfire alcoves.
And that luxury of luxuries - flushing toilets!

|mmmm, the GPS is having trouble "finding" us!|
|A "street" sign... that's promising!|
|Mmm, that change shouldn't be here until tomorrow...|
|... but it is! And the GPS is still lost!|
|Sometimes the best thing to do is relax with a nice cup of tea!|
|And to start dinner ...|
|while we watch the rain!|
|Water brings out the colours on this hollow log|
|and this lichen on the earth.|
|Red and green - Christmas colours eucalyptus style.|
|Butterfly in cognito (with my apologies because only his feet are in focus!)|
|Ye Olde Fence... don't you wonder how old this is and about the craftsman who made it?|
|Can't help it - old fences bring out the urge to be creative! Love the lichen and the weathered grey wood and the hole for the rail...|
|This huntsman found the perfect possie to shelter from the rain!|
So are you a camper or do you hate it with a passion? What would be your perfect escape for a weekend?
