Staying at home. But not at home. Our interstate lockdown during the COVID19 pandemic.

Lockdown in our bayside Melbourne townhouse. With 2 VERY high energy boys. And only a small courtyard. With no kindergarten. Or playgrounds. With our local beaches closed. And chilly Melbourne weather. It would not have been fun. And there’s no guarantee I wouldn’t have sold one of them on eBay (with contactless pick up, of […]

Road tripping Australia. Part 4 – The Byron Bay detour.
