A sojourn in Narrawong, Victoria

Isabel's gymnastics competitions have taken us to our capital city Adelaide, and now to the Victorian town of Portland. We live only an hour and a half from Portland, so it was a quick trip over the border. 

These photos were taken in the late afternoon, after we'd arrived on a Friday. Brett took the girls exploring while I settled all of the stuff into our cabin at the Narrawong Top Tourist park, 10 minutes from the township of Portland. Before they returned to the cabin, I got the chance to duck out on my own with camera, prior to catching up with them. 

The park is surrounded by the Surry River, which you can cross to play on the beach. It was the perfect place to pause, or for a longer stay for fishing, beachcombing or checking out the sights of Portland, of which there are many!

On the drive home after Isabel's gymnastics, I silently pondered the thought of escaping here on my own, for some fishing and relaxing. It'd be perfect.

  5. All your photos are stunning Alicia but I especially love that first shot with the reflection of the trees in the river - gorgeous. So pleased I remembered to linkup - weird not holding one of my own but freeing so I can join in more with others now!

  7. This looks like the most beautiful spot. We spent New Year at Lakes Entrance, opposite side of Vic, I know, but your photos brought back lovely memories of our holiday. The first photo is a stunner.
