It’s so lovely to be back in Portland Victoria for our annual holiday. We are here for a week.
The difference in weather this year compared to last year is significant. In January 2013 Portland was surrounded by bush fires. We had to evacuate the holiday house we were staying in because of the approaching fires. So far this January, the weather has been cold with rain and high winds. It has been a particularly cool summer in Victoria so far.
Sunday morning we headed out of Portland to Cape Bridgewater beach so my eldest son could surf. The weather changed from sunshine to rain in two hours. Despite the weather, the beach and scenery were magnificent. The cooler weather did not stop the flies buzzing around.
With the colder weather over the next few days some day trips around Portland are planned.
Enjoy your week.
