Lerderderg!

Leon and I went hiking and camping this weekend, the first time since July. Allegedly it is summer here, but I still found myself wearing my Goats beanie. It's colder than it should be for December!

No photos of me in the beanie, so I give you this instead
The weekend was amazing. It was free camping, and the second night when we hiked it there was no one around at all. Just us, and a herd of goats that wandered by. Most of the camping I've done in Australia has been "no fires" but Lerderderg State Park  allows them. there was tons of wood lying around, so we had a fire, which was a real treat, although we were slightly edgy, because we know how easily bushfires start. 

As promised I started some left over sock yarn socks for my father, which was perfect, because stripped stocking stitch socks are simple enough to knit by the light of a fire. In the car to and from I finished Breathing Space, which is currently having a bath and I'll post pictures once its blocked. 

The hiking was magnificent. It felt very isolated, and we saw no-one, and the whole park is an hour and a half from our house -one the other side of Melbourne. It's so beautiful and quiet and close. So all in all a great weekend, and hopefully the beginning of some summer camping and hiking shenanigans.
