|Today we did a road trip along the limestone coast having spent the night in Kingston. This was not our favourite place as it seems to shut at 6.30pm and we had to make do with a sandwich from the garage rather than the nice dinner we had been expecting.
First we drove to a place called Robe and took photos on the beach and used the internet at the local library. (Admin waits for no man or woman). Following this we drove through some stunning scenery to a place called Millicent. In a strange decision we decided to raid the local cheap clothes store and discovered to our delight we had both come down a clothes size.
Driving is amazing as there are literally no cars on the road. At times it feels like we are the only people on the planet. Our next stop was Mount Gambier. Here we saw amazing lakes in the remains of an old volcano, and some gardens within a sink hole and caves. Sink holes are huge holes in the ground created when a cave collapses.
We then headed off for Portland to find the famous Tram, missing its last trip by less than 30 seconds. Never mind at least we got the picture and had a tea and toasted sandwich.
We head out from Portland to Port Fairy where we take in the colonial architecture before searching out the best fish and chip shop in the state of Victoria.
As the sun goes down we drive along the coastal road looking out to sea and reflect that it is the journey and the stunning sea views and Austrailian landscape, rather than the places we have been that have made this one of the most amazing days we have had.
We rest for the night at Warnambool and prepare to take on the Great Ocean Road at dawn tomorrow.
