The Great Outdoors

Many visitors to Victoria venture south along the Great Ocean Road, arguably the finest drive in Australia. The road begins in Torquay - Australia's surfing capital - and winds its way along precipitous vertigo inducing cliffs, and beautiful beaches, through rain forests and pasture land until it reaches the rocky coastline of Port Campbell National Park and its Twelve Apostles, a row of imposing sandstone stacks just off the coast.

I'd love to tell you we drove the road on the weekend - we didn't. We did travel down to a town on its route though - the charmingly picturesque Anglesea, about 15km beyond Torquay on the Great Ocean Road. Kangaroos graze freely on the 18 hole golf course - quite a hazard for early morning golfers; quite a delight for Jemimah. There are loads of beautiful red and green parrots flying through the Melaleuka tee tree scrub, fine beaches and gorgeous bush walks. It was also the site for our Church's annual fellowship camp.
Here are some photos so you can see what we got up to!

A healthy breakfast?

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
