The Great Ocean Road

Well, yesterday we left Melbourne under blue skies. Our first stop was in Torquay, Victoria's surfing capital and a major vacation resort town. While there we also stopped at Bells Beach, where they hold an annual international surfing competition. I had been here in 2006 but I still took pictures again. This time there were no surfers in the water.

Next was the drive along the Great Ocean Road. This is considered one of the best coastal drives of the world! I have some good shots. As we moved west, the weather became a little more overcast. After visiting the amazing Twelve Apostles, (only 8 standing) we made stops at Loch Ard and London Bridge. Spent the night in Warrnambool and had dinner at Flagstaff Hill. They do a re enactment of the Loch Ard shipwreck.

Today we continue our drive west, leaving the state of Victoria and arrive in South Australia.
