After lunch we took a drive to the Bellarine Peninsula (finally seeing the ocean after 21 days absence), visiting Portarlington for a walk along the local jetty, Queenscliff where we checked out the ferry that runs between here and Sorrento (on the opposing Mornington Peninsula) and also viewed the 'rip' which forms the entrance to Port Phillip Bay and the ports of Melbourne and Geelong. We also enjoyed afternoon tea from ...
Today we left Sydney and headed back out on the road towards Melbourne stopping off at the Blue Mountains. The temperature was 35 degrees on the coast and 43 degrees inland. It is by far the hottest day so far which made for a pretty uncomfortable drive. Non the less we made the 2 hour journey inland towards the Blue Mountains and one of the main view points.

... I'd know!?! Today Kathy came by and picked us up to go into Geelong. I don't know why, must be because of all the footy, I have always thought that Geelong was a suburb of Melbourne. I didn't know it was a city and quite a way from Melbourne at that! You learn something new every day. I'd seen photos of the famous bollards on Geelongs foreshore and Kathy knew that this was something we'd like to see. They are a must do if you're ever anywhere near Geelong. This info is from the ...
