The Great Ocean Road

Continuing on our road trip, the next day was mostly spent in the car heading towards the coast.  The rain held off and after getting away from the city, the scenery changed and we found ourselves alone on beautiful country roads, littered with dairy cows and ever changing scenery.   As we got closer to the coast the skies finally opened up and for a while we doubted if we'd be able to even see the famed Twelve Apostles due to the dense fog. 

Luckily for us, by the time we finally viewed the ocean the storm had passed and we stepped out of the car, ready to take some happy snaps.  We weren't the only ones.  At the lookout posts and viewing centers, there seemed to me bus loads of tourists all milling about and this was winter - I can't imagine the crowds in the summer time!  Anyway we layered up and brazed the cold and crowds to check out the dramatic coast line and see the stunning Twelve Apostles, which are actually now only seven.  We also took a stroll around Lock Ard Gorge and happily indulged in some fresh air and infamous jump shots.  Ready to settle down we headed to Port Campbell where we put our feet up and made it an early night - tomorrow is going to be another long day...
