Well after a week on the gold coast, I lob back into Melbourne to find swmbo has the gas heater on.............
Wind and rain again this week.  Gotta love Victoria for it's culture, predictably unpredictable weather, Coast, River and High Country camping, and of course fantastic swaggers. Wonder what the rest of the country are doin;D

Theres a lot of boys on tractors up this way as rain is on the way  . Lots of dust that is about to become mud as we go into the cropping growing season . As its been very dry it will be nice to see a bit of moisture again  . :cheers:
