Last Friday, October 2, we did our overnight camping in Venus Bay. All in all, we were 16 people in our group. Indeed we had a great time exploring some interesting places in Victoria. From home, me, my wife Yanyan and friend, Rod, jumped off and hit the road at 5 a.m. We proceeded to pick up two more friends at Harvey's place.
After settling down in each of our cars, we progressed to our meet up point in one of the petrol stations in Chadstone. From there, we departed to our destination, Venus Bay Park, with a side trip to Wilson's Promontory. Our next stopover was Tidal River. " It is a perennial river of the West Gippsland catchment, located in the Wilson's Promontory region of Victoria."- source- Wikipedia- the free encyclopedia.
During this stop off, we spotted some kangaroos a few meters away from us. They did not mind us at all and some of us were able to take photos of them. After a few minutes, we continued with our trip and next place we visited was Wilson's Promontory itself. We took our lunch near the visitor centre. Before lunch, we trekked first one of the rivers of Wilson's Prom. Everybody in our group enjoyed the amazing wonder of nature.....around us was a picture of life so vivid and inviting. We took photos again to preserve memories of our visit. Then we also visited the famous Squeaky Beach and had some fun.
After the wonderful lunch, we hit the road again and directed to our camping site at Venus Bay Caravan Park. We set up our tents and subsequently, prepared dinner then had some fun taking photos as well as exchanging pleasantries. The next day, we went to Venus Bay beach and did some fishing. Efren, our best catcher of the day, luckily caught some fish and we joyfully brought them back together with a couple of crabs to our campsite. Harvey and Den, our two chefs of the trip, made some wonderful recipe out of their catch.
Hence, we treasured our camping experience and everybody believes that it is a sort of experience worth doing the next time around. Time such as this one allows us to enjoy each other's company and appreciate the beauty of nature.
