Caravan and camping show

Have just spent the day at the caravan and camping show in Caulfield. Who knew there were so many different kinds of vans?!

We came away exhausted, the weather didn't help much, it was so hot! Autumn in Melbourne and I'm sure it must have reached 30 deg, a little too hot to be shopping for caravans!
We loved the Jayco expanda! Complete with shower and toilet, that's my kind of caravan!

Of course, we had to get our card stamped at all the designated points! What a master stroke by the organisers, it certainly made sure we visited every section of the exhibition - including areas we didn't even know existed!

Never realised they had destinations as well as vans - can't wait to get out their and travel around Australia! We picked up a pile of brochures on WA, NT and Qld. This is something that won't happen for quite a few years, but it's never too early to start planning (and dreaming!)

After the exhibition we went for a walk down Chelsea beach, such a beautiful beach, and the setting sun just set it off perfectly. Beautiful white powdery sand and sparkling blue waters - it takes my breath away every time we head down there.

And this time we tried the gelati in Chelsea for the first time - it was beautiful and worth a visit just for the owner, who is so passionate about his gelati and insisted we try the gelati before we bought anything. The cheesecake gelati is to die for!
