I spent last week by Wyangala Dam.
This was my first trip away in my new caravan and I couldn’t be happier with it.
I’ve always loved to camp, but I’ve gotten to old for the basic tent set up.
Actually, I think I just got tired of my bed deflating in the middle of the night!
Not fun, believe me!
So, keen to give my caravan a try out, I hitched up and headed to the dam, with my faithful dog for company.
We had a great time.
I met some great people, spent a lot of time in and by the water and walked a lot of the trails.
I have been to this park many times, but I discovered a lot of treasures while out exploring.
Leo at Elliot’s Lookout. He was a bit hot.
The amazing view from Elliot’s Lookout.
Wyangala Dam has a larger capacity than Sydney Harbour. I hadn’t realized how big it actually is until I saw it from this vantage point.
This was our favorite place to be during the heat of the day, in the shade of the willow tree

Leo and I spent a lot of time in the water too. No better way to cool off.
I found this old hut on a drive up the mountain
We done a lot of exploring, though the constant walking uphill killed my legs!
There are Kangaroos everywhere in the park. Many of the females had joeys too

The big buck presiding over his ladies. I keep my distance from these big guys, they’re a little intimidating.

As you can see, Wyangala is a beautiful spot for a holiday.
I did have an agenda for my trip though.
I wanted to catch up on some writing and churn out some publishable material.
This I did and I have a lot in store for you guys.
I also began my summer working Aphrodite’s magick.
I love working with Aphrodite, her energy is so full of life and confidence,
I always come away, after working with her, feeling great about myself.
This is another extended working, the balance to my Descent work over winter.
I began the first section of this work while in Wyangala, and it was the perfect place to begin.
I associate Aphrodite so closely with the summer sun, water and relaxation, so beginning my work with her while on holiday made it that much more special.
It was easy to tap into her energy while immersed in and surrounded by such natural beauty.

I enjoyed the luxury of my caravan during my stay.
Camping in a van is rather luxurious, with all the comforts of home and, best of all, a comfy double bed!
I also enjoyed travelling by myself for the first time.
My dog is a great little travel companion and you get the chance to meet people more than when you are with a partner or family.
My greatest dream is to travel the Great Ocean Road, something I have long wanted to do.
I’m planning to do it during early Autumn, when it’s not so hot and hopefully not as many tourists about.
This little trip has me keener than ever to hit the road.
