Today offered some of the most beautiful scenery we’ve encountered on the trip so far! This photo is from Phillip Island (SE of Melbourne) and this particular bay is a World Surf Heritage site; not sure what that means, because we didn’t see any surfers, but we did see plenty of waves. We hiked for a couple miles along the coast out to the outcropping pictured below. We were basically on our own the whole time and we aren’t quite sure why there weren’t more people taking all this in, it must be beautiful in lots of places around here.
We put in a long day driving today, about 5 hours in total with both Teresa and I splitting the time behind the wheel. So far we haven’t had any major mishaps with the car, other than some unnecessary use of wipers when our intention was to use the turn signal. 🙂
Tomorrow will be a leisurely drive along the Great Ocean Road and more lookouts and sightseeing along the way. Two more days around Victoria before we head to Cairns!
