Stormy seas at Robe
The weather was quite bad for our Robe visit - but this made for spectacular surf
This blog entry is about our stay in Robe
, a Southern coastal town on the Limestone coast
You can find out more about Robe from Wikipedia
At Robe we stayed in a house at Long beach called Southern tide
. It rained a lot which meant we didn’t get out much - but we were very comfortable. The house had large windows so we could watch the storms come in and be entertained by the little blue wrens
(soggy) that hopped around the garden.
We did venture out a few times. On the first day we visited the Beacon Hill lookout
to get a view across the lakes to Robe and the ocean. There were millions of milipedes
huddled in each of the steps leading up to the lookout. We then did a tourist drive taking in the Obelisk
and Doorway rock
and watched a fishing boat (Nihilator) come from the stormy ocean and enter into the safe harbour
. The second day we spent in Mount Gambier
, and on the last day we had the opportunity to do one of the coastal walks in Robe (see map
) to see Brian and Jenny's house, visit the coffee roasting house of Mahalia
, see some wild ocean surf, and join Basil,
Beacon Hill lookout
Looking out over Robe coast and lakes
Lisa, Henry, Nicholas and Toby for a very delightful dinner and fine wine.
It wasn't as pleasant as I imagined at Robe. I had seen the pictures and I thought it would be all sunshine and fun but it wasn't, as you can see by looking at our pictures.
I liked the house in Robe as I was able to sleep in a bed which had a TV mounted high on the wall which I could control without getting out of bed.
It was great to visit the farm house to play with Nicholas and Toby. We wrestled and watched a movie together. Lisa made great popcorn!
A joke for you ...
Q: Why do dragons sleep during the day?
A: So they can fight knights.
