Maritime history at Port Albert Parking Area

Photo credit: Di and Jim O’Mara and No Boundaries An overnighter – but a beauty!  Just a slight detour in off the beaten track, Port Albert is a sleepy fishing village on the Victorian coast that caters well for a few self-contained RVs right on the foreshore.  The town is steeped in maritime history with some of its buildings dating back to the mid 1800’s. We enjoyed a late afternoon walk around the Old Port Walking Trail, followed by a counter meal at the charming Customs House Inn a short stroll from the parking area. The PORT ALBERT PARKING AREA

My Melbourne Cup experience

The Melbourne Cup is just one of those iconic Aussie events that is on bucket lists everywhere.  Despite the rain, it lived up to our expectations. Mum and I arrived just before the deluge. Unfortunately our ticketed seat was right upstairs, with no cover. We managed to stay dry downstairs – except our feet and heels! But the puddly spot did have a good view of the track.  A couple of hours later, the skies cleared, we wiped down our seats and sat back for the atmosphere and the excitement. It was a long day – we whizzed back to

7 things I didn’t know about the Melbourne Cup

Our Melbourne Cup is held at Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday of November. Here’s what we didn’t know about the Race that Stops the Nation: Without an exception, everyone was so friendly. Every queue (and there will be a few queues), all in our finery, people were excited to be there and smiling. From our seat near the finish line, waiting for lunch, or champagne – even in the Ladies – people were happy to chat. Who knew, that our National Anthem could be so stirring at a horse race. The atmosphere was electric, like a soccer game in Italy!
