Hoping you’re all well as we’re heading into the last quarter of the year.
I’m still “BOND’ing” and have no idea how I can just move forward to something else. There was just so much more to talk about. We never talked about location, or bond movie songs, or the legendary movie starts …. I could go on and on … but *sigh* let’s move on.
And what is my humble little mind coming up with? Well, as I’m writing this, I’m sitting in a little cabin in Lakes Entrance. LE is a small place along the Gippsland coast, east of Melbourne. Yes, I had to drive through the big city to get here. LOL. Which sounds a little silly, because I used to like the big city driving. I used to work in Frankfurt, which had quite some traffic every morning to offer. Anyway, the traffic didn’t worry me. At one stage I was a bit concerned about my girl sitting next to me when we went across the West Gate Bridge as the knuckles turned nearly white (tall bridges aren’t her thing!), but the kicker for me was when we went through the tunnel and nearly crawled along at some stage. And suddenly the whole car shook. It honestly did! So trying to stay calm, after all I AM THE PARENT, I started to sing along One Direction. It always makes me laugh, their lyrics are beyond hilarious, but don’t tell my girls. LOL. Anyway, shaking car. Turned out, we had one of this truck next to us, which had so much horsepower it rumbled through the tunnel with a big attitude. You would not believe how glad I was to “see the light” at the end of the tunnel 😉
So, Lakes Entrance is a small fishing port with about 4,500 people living there, near a man-made channel connecting the Gippsland Lakes to the Bass Strait. We love it here and although a long drive, it’s worth coming for only a few days. The girls and I love the beach, and we always try to do the walk to the “entrance” to spot the seals and dolphins. And every time we just sit there, amazed by the spectacle in front of us.
My current WIP is set along the NSW coast, but, yes I admit, Lakes Entrance (and Mirrimbula as well) is always in the back of my mind when I’m writing.
What’s your favourite spot you like visiting and why?
