I have been in Apollo Bay since the 22nd and finally things are for the most part going really well!! I have some steady work at the bakery and I'm right on the ocean. Christmas was really quite rough though. It felt strange to be alone and I was really homesick and not very happy for a few days. A week stretch of clouds and rain had me wondering …

I loved this place, with it's quirkiness. Suited me to a t also. My first night was filled with all sorts a real mix of europeans. And we all just mingled together and got on very well. The couches in the lounge on look the rapid waves crashing on the shore and is a pleasure to sit with a cuppa on a colder day and still be able to be next to the ocean at such a reasonable price. Someone described it as the Hill Billy Experience. I'd agree with that. Definately worth considering a stay here if you like character and that homely feel.
