Are you telling the truth? Might be a little white lie, unless Ballarat is experiencing a freak cold snap!

Sunny this morning, clouds are rolling in now though and as it's nearing sundown the air is cooling rapidly.
Was supposed to be going sailing but it's blowing a gale on the coast so that quickly changed. We went in search of photographic opportunities, looking for Wommin Lake (in the dune area behind the beach between Fingal Head and Kingscliffe)  :) Found the lake but very overgrown so not to many photos taken. The dog enjoyed the walk anyway  8)

and if anyone watches The Weather Channel on Austar, keep an eye out on the pic I took today while out and about

Too cold to pootle then? I went for a drive yesterday in the Merc. Think I passed Easo. If he was heading in the direction of Melbourne on the Calder early yesterday arvo, it probably was.
I called in to see the fellow who sold Phoenix the centre box for the ambulance. He has some TAC plate holders at a good price so I bought some. He's got many more if anyone wants some.
Just washing the Merc, feeding the leather and putting it away before it gets too cold.
It's been fine and sunny (although a little cool) all weekend.

Is raining cats and dogs still here, was 11c this morning, and its been cold and raining all day, i have had to resort to wearing socks and shoes, i even have a long sleeved top to keep me warm....... 

Kid of funny really we used have winters in the Uk, with average temps of -2-5 for weeks on end, plus all the other months when it was cold and damp, i suppose having houses that are built to take the cold and central heating all helps...... Now a radiator would be nice in the bed room........

Ballarat is a lovely town. Fantastic hospitals. I just had a stay in St John of God. Great staff.
Don't underrate it. The coolness is only the temperature. The people make it warm.

Hey Mick_MARSH I'm trying to keep it a secret....

Ballarat is actually a fantastic place to live only cold in the depth of winter otherwise fantastic temperate climate, especially autumn
