We left Toora on another lovely spring morning.

Lunch at Tooradin
The name of Tooradin comes from the Boon wurrung word too-roo-dun, which refers to the Bunyip that lived in the Koo-Wee-Rup Swamp. The Dreamtime creature had a ‘reputation for devouring human beings’ and ‘lived in the thick mud beneath the water of a waterhole that never dried up.
The iPhone link to the car failed us and we had to resort to Maureen holding the phone so I could read the directions at a glance…here we are at the Gas Works Theatre in Albert Park where Laura’s play is being produced. The adjacent cafe had a nice line in refreshments.
It was a little stressful finding the hotel as the Sheila the iPhone sat-nav went on strike amongst the tall buildings but after a couple of circuits we finally made it none the worse for our experience.
