Great Ocean Road Day Two

I ran out of superlatives to describe all the amazing views we had today, so since a picture is worth a thousand words, here is a photo blog of our day. These are some of my favorites from the 319 photos I took today!

Sunrise outside of our B&B, the Apollo Bay Guest House.

Long shadows on the beach at Apollo Bay at sunrise.

Maits Trail through the rain forest along the Great Ocean Road.

Image

We found some koalas!

Up close and personal!

Image

Cape Otway Light Station

Image

Whales migrate past the Cape Otway Light Station, so there is a whale theme on the surrounding grounds.

Image

12 Apostles, as beautiful as in all the travel brochures!

Image

More apostles, in a spectacular setting.

Image

Loch Ard

Image

Loch Ard beach, site of a great survival story after a ship wreck.

Image

NEVER turn your back to the sea!

Image

The power of the waves was awe-inspiring. We were enthralled!

Burial site of 2 of the 4 bodies recovered from the Loch Ard ship wreck.

A wave crashing into the Port Campbell pier. We were on the other end of the pier to get this photo!

Image

The Arch

Image

London Bridge. This rock bridge formation was connected to the main land on the left until the middle fell into the ocean in 1991.

Image

The sun was out in spite of the dark clouds over the ocean.

The Grotto

Our cheese plate appetizer at a restaurant called Bojangles in Warrnambool, VIC. Delicious pizzas followed the cheese plate. Wonderful way to end a wonderful day.

    Had no idea there was a rainforest in the south! Loved all of the pictures, especially congratulations on the koalas.

    What a wonderful pictorial trip of the area. Really loved the coastal pics. Looked a
    little chilly with your winter coats on.

    I’m enjoying your travel log and pics. Just to let you know, Joe and I head to J Lake tomorrow to move into the addition, have a wood stove installed and spend the week getting things in order. Will check on your place too. No koalas but I understand there has been a fisher per Bob Y. Robin

    All I can say is “WOW”! J&J has given you a wonderful gift and it is obvious that you are taking advantage of it to the fullest! Last night I was with Pam Bradley and Debbie Peterson, hosting at RAIHN dinner evening. That’s another story – but leave it to say we had a lot of time to chat! Anyway, after hearing about your blog, I decided I really needed to log on! Oh what a wonderful time you are having! As a HE, I must say I am interested in tasting pulled lamb some day and must remember about napkin etiquette!
    We leave Wednesday for our European river cruise, so I will be playing catch-up on your blog when we return at the end of the month. Safe travels for all of us.
