When the weather is unbearable

March 2019, Port Albert, Vic

Camped in Toora near Victoria’s famous Wilson’s Promontory and with the mercury hovering in the high 30’s we set off for a picnic in the rainforest at Tarra Bulga National Park. Within minutes of hitting the road a friend rang to warn us of bushfires near there. Wilson’s Prom National Park had also been closed due to bushfires… and we’d forgotten our sandwiches. Hot and stuffed and plans astray, we headed for the cool of the coast at historic Port Albert only to be confronted by a bear on a ute who’d obviously had a much worse day than a bunch of sweaty confused caravanners.

  1. What on earth was a bearing doing on a Ute – in Australia. The heat can get oppressive when it goes on for to long. I hope it breaks for you soon. Keep safe away from the fires.
