The first few days of our holiday in Rye, Vic, the weather was very cold but on the third day we woke to thick smoke blanketing the town. The fires were in eastern Victoria miles away but Melbourne and other parts of Victoria were covered in smoke. We had the worst air quality in the world on that day. (so unlike Australia). So we decided to have a day at home playing board games or digital games.
The smoke covered the view of the Bay and it made us cough so we stayed inside until after lunch.
In the afternoon the smoke cleared and the sun came out and the temperature was warming up. So the family sneaked off to the beach while we were having a nap. When I woke I decided to find my way to the beach.It was a 15 min walk and another 15 min to walk along the beach track to find the family at their Beach Box (old boat shed).
