The neighbours next door told us th' night before that they saw th' field in front o' th' cottages were bein' inhabited by a few Kangaroos that mornin', but this mornin' we have no such luck. Aarrr! In order t' still see a few animals, we decided th' night before that this mornin', we were goin' t' walk th' Faye’s Creek Loop, a 2.5km leisurely stroll through th' forest “with a high chance o' spottin' wildlife”. That sounds like somethin' fer us!
And wildlife we have spotted, pass the grog! A plethora o' Kangaroos, and even a flock o' Emu crossed our paths! Fire the cannons! As th' sun were bein' still hidden behind one o' th' two crests, we got really cold durin' th' walk and decided we needed t' warm up o'er breakfast and some nice tea. Now, that is how ye start th' day well.
As we intended t' do a few walks today, we started off early and drove up th' mountain towards a place called Wonderland Carpark. With a name like that, it ought t' be good, right? The surroundin's were great, but th' walk we wanted t' do (t' th' Grand Canyon) were bein' closed. As our second destination would be best accessible from another startin' point, we decided t' leave Wonderland and head fer th' Sundial Carpark, ye scurvey dog. The names here are great! From this second Parkin area, we embarked on th' trail t' The Pinnacle, a really high vantage point o'er th' valley below with th' most wonderful track towards it leadin' though dry Eucalyptus forest and o'er a lot o' rocks, I'll warrant ye. Oh yeah, we have been climbin' and scalin' rocks fer a few hours today! And swab the deck! It were bein' awesome! If ye e'er happen t' be in th' vicinity o' Halls Gap, please go t' th' Grampians NP and find this trail. Aarrr, avast! 🙂
After returnin' t' our boat, we went back t' th' village and treated ourselves on a nice ice cream, as th' temperature had risen t' 20+ degrees with virtually no clouds in th' sky. Life is good aroun' here!
Tomorrow we have t' leave already, and we have a long journey in front o' us. The destination: Robe.
