Well, Ariel and I have just returned from a weekend away at Dwellingup, camping. How was it? First and foremost, it was cold. Bitterly cold. Notwithstanding the sub-arctic conditions, however, it was absolutely fantastic.
The Murray River is beautiful, and we were camped no more than fifty metres away from it. We camped in the “Stringers” area of the Lane Poole Reserve, and managed to wrangle probably the best camping site in the entire park — secluded, equipped with a fire pit, and quiet.
As you can see from the photos below, our two primary concerns were a) exploring the banks of the river, and b) fire. When it’s so cold at noon that you can see your breath, a fire is a wonderful thing.
