Christmas Day at Lakes Entrance

Lakes Entrance has a first class Fisherman’s Co-op which made the decision of what to have for a special Christmas lunch very easy. We decided on one dozen Pacific (large) oysters each, followed by Lobster Mornay on a bed of mashed potatoes with finely chopped green onions through it.

Dennis cut the lobster into chunks and put the two empty half shells into the oven to warm. When I made a light mornay sauce, he put the lobster chunks into the sauce to heat through, then took the 2 now warm shells out of the oven, spooned the lobster mixture in and placed the finished product on a bed of mash – divine.

On Christmas night the owner of the Caravan Park invited everyone to another feast in the camp kitchen, he cooked some delicious pork with crackling and chickens for everyone with fried potatoes and lots of different salads. I was so full from lunch, I couldn’t do it justice but enjoyed chatting to the other campers. The weather was perfect - sunny but mild - about 24C.

Lakes Entrance in Victoria, truly is a beautiful place.
