Earlier in the year, we dined by Lake Beaufort as the sun set. Actually it is more accurate to say we sat with a view of the large puddle that had been the lake!
Although there are many references to Lake Beaufort online - my map of Victoria refers to the same body of water as Lake Goldsmith.
Actually, no - during further explorations, we drove past Lake Goldsmith and it is definitely quite separate to Beaufort. There were a few houses nearby and a very interesting park (with gypsy wagons), the site of an annual steam rally. We've just missed this year's event and won't be local in 2017.
Vaughan was at school when Nick, Erin and I headed out for drive with Bandit. We picnicked in a roadside rest area but found ourselves near Beaufort a bit later in the day, so called past the lake to see it as it should be. There were many, many happy froggies singing their appreciation of all the water!
