From Halls Gap to Warnambool for fish and chips at the beach and then on to Port Campbell. Our resident pom, Jazz, takes a swim in the Southern Ocean and later drags Dan in too. The water is cold, really cold but according to Jasmine it is quite nice. A walk along the cliffs over looking the bay completes our afternoon.
On return to our cabin I notice that there is a fairy penguin colony nearby so we venture out at sunset prepared to wait it out until they return from a hard day fishing at sea. The sunset turns out to be brilliant, amazing colours transforming the sky and reflecting off limestone cliffs and the surging sea.
The next day is dedicated to the ocean road with all it’s rugged, dramatic coastline. It is truly a pilgrimage worth doing and you really have to just ‘be’ there. In saying that I have included a few pictures that really do not do these sights any justice at all.
Arrive safely at Apollo Bay, Dan and Jazz get in some sun baking and another swim before enjoying a feast of seafood including, lobster, oysters, prawns, muscles and bugs. Mostly local produce which is wonderfully fresh. Mmmm and yum is all I can say about that.
