THE WALLABY TRACK WITH LIONEL MUSSELL

HERE , THERE AND EVERYWHERE !

HOW MUCH CAN YOU PACK INTO A MONTH ?

Aerial view of Lakes Entrance , Vic .
From a week-long celebration of my 90th birthday , including visiting a local zoo with my family , to sharing an evening with former Heywold Apex members and their wives who were staying at the Lakeside Tourist Park at Halls Gap , it has been a very busy month .
I even headed to an ACC Lone Trekkers muster at Lakes Entrance , Vic . On the way , Yemmy started to make strange noises as I slowed to a stop . We couldn ' t find out what it was so I rang my Sprinter guru , Eric , and he told me to check the wheel nuts for tightness . He ' s a genius because one front wheel had loose nuts and tightening them cured the noise .
We had a busy but enjoyable week in Lakes Entrance . Organiser Reg had booked us on a lovely luncheon cruise on the Gippsland Lakes . There was an excellent commentary as we cruised along – we saw the lakes and much more from a helicopter later in the week .
One day we visited Nyerimilang Heritage Park and four of us decided to walk down to the lake via 95 Steps . The other three were more worried about me and the
steps than I was – after all I ' m only 90 ! I did get a certificate when we got back to the shop !
We set off nice and early on the Sunday morning and drove out to what we thought was the airport . It was an airport but not the one with helicopters ! A friendly farmer who had been chasing his cows in a paddock near the runway told us we were at the wrong airport ! Who would have thought there would be two airports in a town like Lakes Entrance ?
We got to the right airport a bit late and we were soon in the air where the views were great . We had taken the cover off my iPhone for something and had accidentally turned the brightness down so I had a blank , black screen and had to take photos by guess . Amazingly , most of them came out quite good so I ' ll put one or two here .
Have a great Christmas and I ' ll see you next year .
