When I woke up in Bordertown I could hear the trucks moving across the border again and the power was back on! More bad weather was forecast so I packed up and hit the road. The A8 was wet and potholed, and I had to take care. The rain-soaked countryside was beautiful. I passed the Grampians, and other picturesque ranges, and wished that I had time to look more closely, but was also keen, now on my last day, to reach my destination safely!
The sun came out when I got closer to Creswick. It was a relief to know I was nearly there, but a little sad to realise the journey was over. I loved every minute of it! Even the terror of the South Australian storm!
