On Sunday Dh and I went out for the day, one of his get togethers with his exservice mates. We went to the army base called Puckapunyal near Seymour.
Odd you might think for ex airforce fellas but there are big things there and anything big is of interest to them lol
To get there we chose to take the Melba Highway via Yarra Glen and then through the Kinglake/Toolangi Forest. The main highway is now open to through traffic but the roads to Kinglake and Toolangi that branch off it are still closed.
I tried to get some photos but the car seemed to be going all over the place – this one shows (sort of ) the police car at the Healesville Kinglake road block – but after taking a couple I just sat there in shock.
All that destruction is awful to see – blackened trees one kilometre after another – what it would of been like on those awful days is unimaginable
Anyway this is where we went, or rather where the men were going and the women tagging along for the ride.
