carmel’s Travel Diary

Location: Warranwood, Melbourne, Australia

MapHi folk, I hope you all had a great Christmas. We have been in Melbourne (outer) for about a month now. We stayed for about a week at (Barrie's brother) Kevin and Mary's holiday house at Blairgowrie on the Mornington peninsula, then moved over to (our son) Michael and Carolyn's place at Donvale east of Melbourne. We also stayed there for about a week, during which time, we had Christmas at (our other son) Ross and Jacque's. There were 31 there as everyone from Jacque's family as well as our own came down for it. It was a perfect day, and a great time was had by one and all. Then, on 27/12, we had a family get-together for my family at Michael and Carolyn's - about 40 people. It was a really hot day, so we all spent the time in the pool area. We also bought a caravan over this time (Sue and Paul towed the camper/trailer back to Qld when they left), so we slept in it as Michael and Carolyn had a fairly crowded house with all of our family staying there. On 29/12, we had a family get-together for Barrie's side of the family - again about 40 people, but this time we all went to a park.

We then had a week at the local caravan park before moving over to Ross and Jacque's. We are here till 28/1 house and animal sitting while they are on holidays. They have a rabbit, a guinea pig and a gorgeous old dog who is blind. Where we go next is still under discussion!! I'll let you know when it is all decided.

BY THE WAY, I'VE AT LAST MANAGED TO GET SOME TASSIE PHOTOS ONTO THE DIARY. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM
