Last Thursday I did a day trip with my visitors from the States, Nia and her husband. I left home at 7am to pick them up from the Sofitel in the city before heading to Geelong and the Great Ocean Road. The first place we went to was Point Lonsdale.
It seemed appropriate to start there, Nia had talked about how she had enjoyed walking through the blog when we met on Wednesday, so it was good to show some more. As you can see, it was overcast and not very inspiring, though the clouds were fantastic.
On the way to Barwon Heads we took a wrong turn and found the weirdest place. We couldn’t work out what this was, so if you have any ideas, please share them.
In Barwon Heads I changed the photos that I have hanging at Barwon Orange. The others I had there were too dark, so I had to find some lighter ones. Hopefully people will like the new ones more.
We stopped at Bell’s Beach, well you have to don’t you since it is probably the most famous part of the coastal area, well almost. There were people out there surfing. I took the wrong lens and didn’t get any of the surfers.
Then we headed to the lighthouse at Aireys Inlet. The clouds parted and we were greeted with the most beautiful sunshine and the rest of the day was stunning. It was too good.
After Aireys Inlet we were all hungry and so we went to the restaurant on the Pier at Lorne for a very nice lunch. We all ate the Burramundi with sweet chilli mustard sauce. It was very nice. It was great sitting next to the Ocean and eating.
I will save the rest of the photos for tomorrow, but here is a gallery of others taken around the same time as the ones above.
I just wanted to add that the water really is that beautiful turquoise colour.
