• Portland RV rest area •
What an awesome spot to pull up for a couple of nights! Nice grassy area, with super clean public toilets 🚽
There was even the tram museum right next to us, so we went on a trip around Portland seeing the sites 👌🏼 • 48 hr stop over only
• Must be self contained
• Pet Friendly
Beach parking 🏖
We have gotten braver with where we park our van, either for lunch, kids rests or even overnight.
We use free camps wherever possible. As we live full-time on wheels, we couldn’t possibly pay for caravan parks every night 😝
So this week we’ve started pulling up along the coast (room allowing of course, gotta be considerate) and cooking meals right along the beach. It’s been amazing, not to mention the sea breeze 🌊🍃 Last night we swam then cooked and showered with this view of the storm rolling in. #grateful •
🦀How cute is this little guy!? 🦀
We met him and about a million of his brothers and sisters on a deserted beach on the WA coastline on our trip. It was the best surprise! Walking over the sand dunes to find miles and miles of secluded beach and watching millions of them running to the waters edge and getting swept away into the water. It was honestly one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen!
We're only 18 days into January but how's 2019 treating you so far?

From Hyden we headed back to the coast, and set up in Albany for a few days.
From here you can day trip both east and west, and cover most of the major spots, without spending half the day in the car. We spent 4 days here, but you could easily spend a whole lot more.
There are heaps of different types of accomodation available depending on what you want, but we did find again that things are pretty booked at this time of year, so I’d just double check before rolling into town 👍
With beaches as spectacular as anywhere we have been so far you won’t be disappointed.
The bay at Emu Point is also a great spot to spend the morning. A jetty, swimming area, playground and coffee shop make it easy to lose track of time.
To the east you have places like Nanarup and Two Peoples Bay which both offer great spots for swimming in the perfect aqua water. Cheyne Beach is also supposed to be spectacular (but with the weather turning we chose to keep heading west). To the west you have Torndirrup National Park, where you’ll find The Gap and the blowholes. You could easily head further west from here if you wanted too, but our plans see us picking up the rest of the spots we want to check out from there 👍
Live the moment. Capture the moment. Share the moment.
Moments turn into memories, but memories are better shared when there's images to show. I love what I do and I love it even more being able to share it with you guys. The last few days has been incredible with the interaction and responses I have received. You guys are wicked and I can't wait to continue to show you what I get up to. I hope you guys get stoked from what I share and it pushes you to get out their and create memories like these for yourselves.
Unfortunately my image from Wednesday (cliff jumping) can't be shared on either of South Australia page or Australia because they can't support cliff jumping as it may lead to someone getting injured and complaining that they promoted it. Do it at your own risk people, check depths, know your way out and stop being so god damn soft. Bit of a rant because cliff jumping is one of the best things to do around this area and not being able to promote it on a bigger scale sucks so much. Rant over.

Rarely am I away from them and yet every so often I look up and I’m genuinely amazed by how much they’ve grown. Living outside, often barefoot, will do that, I guess. These summer days are dictated by the sun which, in Victoria, means a 9pm bedtime (feeling grateful that I don’t have to deal with a school bell next week because that would not be pretty). Our travel days usually involve a rest stop in a little town where we op shop, visit the local park and grab a coffee which often makes me wonder if we’re just doing a park/cafe tour of Australia. Right now these two are scootering around the caravan park with a gaggle of kids; friends for a few days before we move on to our next stop 🚌🔆🌿
