    To the North

    After the PROM, we started our journey to Sydney. We first stopped at Sale. Why was the 31 Sale? And why not? Dirty little town in Victoria with streets at right angles and typical town of the region's center, namely alternating McDonalds, KFC, supermarkets, liquor store, farm equipment and dog grooming. Arriving in town, there were not many people. We were strangers in a bad TV movie. Even our hotel was closed. It was like leaving a clean sweep in 2013 to 2014 maybe 2013 wanted to forget that it was annus horribilis (well for me). Only the fish and chips and Formica tables, we helped restore us.

    In the afternoon we tried to swim across a range of 150 km long (Ninety Nine Miles Beach). In addition to the Australian waves that bring them to the rank of Lacanau dwarf, wind dissuaded us from going beyond the calf. We would have walked down, but it is 150 km long.

    In the evening we had a picnic in the room: foie gras Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, white wine, melon y jamon. On TV there were fireworks in Sydney fires. We had just started a new year.

    On January 1, at a time when France was still last year, we took our road in the rain.

    We tried to enjoy the sun shines, but they were rare. A bit of Brittany in July but with 25 ° C anyway.

    We still impressive through eucalyptus forests. We still scrutinized wombats, koalas and kangaroos, when a road sign we showed. In vain.

    Before arrival at Eden, a lyrebird crossed the road. For an hour we listened to her singing and its various imitations. We saw its tail upright while calling females. But with vegetation, impossible to photograph doing the peacock.

    Then we continued our journey to Bateman Bay. The landscape alternates farms and forests of sight eucalyptus. Sometimes it looks like Switzerland, sometimes at Normandy. The weather was still gray. A new attempt to swim miscarried.

    In the evening we took our Australian burger "Breath Warthog" (entire program). Very average, but the beer was good.

    It was not until the last few kilometers before Sydney to find the great blue sky.
