The Great Ocean Road


Near Melbourne along the southeast coast is an area called the Great Ocean Road; aptly called because the road is ~150 miles long. The water was relatively calm but there were some people surfing including a group of people that had just arrived. The tide was partly out and there were lovely textures in the rocks and sand. We stayed two nights at The Great Ocean Road Resort (over named but nice and convenient) in Anglesea and drove around to see stuff. This was the first time in a few years driving on the left side of the road. The hardest thing to remember was that the direction signal lever is on the other side of the steering wheel - I turned on the wipers many times.
