Mt Gambier and Kingston SE

Day 3 - 5hrs 30mins traveling: The day dawned hot with a beautiful blue, cloudless sky :) On the itinerary today is a trip to Portland, then across the Victorian border into South Australian - Mt Gambier is our first stop here, stopping for the night in Kingston SE.

After a delicious cooked breakfast in Warrnambool, we wandered across the road to a huge Spotlight Store (craft and dress material). I was very good and didn't buy too much...hehehe...I did pick up a couple of cake plates for DD and DD-in-law for Christmas, at 40% off these were a bargain.

Even after a not too bad sleep, we were both still a bit tried and very sore from yesterday's day tripping. This helped us to decide to skip Portland and just head straight to Mt Gambier.

Lunch was had in a little coffee shop that was part of the Mt Gambier Library, then a trip to Target was needed to get ourselves hats and sunscreen. Mt Gambier is famous for it's Blue Crater Lake as you can see from the photo. There were no good places to take a photograph that really showed the blue of the lake but it was awesome!

Back in the car and onto Kingston SE, a little coastal town. Part of South Australia's charm is the sandstone houses made in a Victorian style. Combine that with lovely people, a relaxed atmosphere and you have a delightful place to visit.

Our day finished with fish and chips eaten beside the beach and watching the sun go down.
Have a great day!
