Weekend Wanderings – Around the Bellarine Peninsula
As I said the other day, I am away this weekend, back down at Ocean Grove. It is proving to be too relaxing, and almost no photos are being taken. The two I am staying away with, are being very lazy and won’t go out and take photos with me. It is a little disappointing, but I will just have to go on my own. I have some ideas, and have already taken heaps of photos, though mostly of textures at all the wineries they have dragged me too.
So I thought I would try something a little different with three of the images today. Sort of going with the theme earlier in the week and something I have wanted to try.
I thought I would try antiquing some images of the coastline, see if I can make the images look old. I didn’t quite get it, but I like the idea and might play some more with them. Some of the textures I got today are perfect for this sort of thing.
On the way to one of the wineries we found this old house. We couldn’t get any closer to it, but it would have been good if we could have. It looks pretty amazing. There was no way to get past the fence.
It has been a funny weekend. The weather has been crap really, so trying to get good shots is almost pointless, so playing with them seems to be the best idea. I am hoping to go out again soon though. Will see if I can get some more shots.
As I said the weekend has been strange but we did go back to Barwon Orange in Barwon Heads for dinner last night and really, it is one of the best places I have ever eaten at. The food was so amazing. One friend had the Thai Pumpkin Soup and the flavours were so wonderful, yeah, I tried some. I loved it, I even asked if he gave out the recipe, apparently the chef doesn’t really use one, that doesn’t seem quite fair. I want to be able to make it at home. The lamb was perfect, the dessert melted in our mouths, and the wine was brilliant. It was the best meal, none of us had anything to complain about. So if you are in Barwon Heads try Barwon Orange, you won’t regret it. Though might be good if you booked first, they get busy.
We also went there for breakfast this morning, good coffee and good size breakfast, can you tell I love the place. It was brilliant.
I should also thank Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads Stays for all their help with our stay. They have also been great.
I will see if I can post more photos tomorrow when I get home.
