Comfortable night and..... Thank goodness, no rain today and temp up by 10 degrees. Had a brief look at the pretty fishing port of Port Fairy before leaving for the sights of the Great Ocean Road. Many places along the road you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the UK with green fields full of cows, forests, Lake District-type overhung tree …
I woke at 5:30 to trills, cheeps, squawks, caws & pan pipes. Of course I couldn't see the performers. It made my breakfast in bed all the better.

A great place to stay on The Great Ocean Rd- easily found with friendly reception and fresh milk for tea and coffee. Motel style with car outside the door- huge room and bathroom with all amenities. Small but pretty swimming pool.
