A reflection on activities on Saturday 10 December – It doesn't look very far on the map, but the trip from Geeveston to Hawley Beach was quite a drive, especially the last 50 kms or so over secondary roads (sealed but often relatively narrow with quite a few hills and bends). We had lunch at Ross, which is a pleasant town with various “antique” markets and similar activities.
We visited Hawley House in February 2008, so this is a re-visit. Last time, the area was affected by drought but this time it looks much better. There are lots of flowers in the gardens and the wetlands have adequate water. The frogs croak all the time (good to hear).
There is a group of 24 here, and we're the only others. The group ate in the dining room, and dinner for us was set up in the lounge room, by the window. We felt quite aristocratic, being waited on separately. The dinner was good, too. And there's a good wi-fi connection.
