... and sand! After that we headed back to the van however then the kids decided that they really wanted to try out the caravan park swimming pool (which was admittedly pretty impressive) while they had their wetsuits on, so, off we tripped to the other side of the park (which in that park is a long way!). They had loads of fun again and wore themselves out which worked well for all concerned.
The next day, after doing some school work, we decided to head ...
... setting up the van and to take the kids to the beach and I headed into Lorne for a spot of window shopping on my own which is a first for the whole trip and, I must admit, just glorious! I love Lorne, it is a lot like Dunsborough but with three times as many cafés, restaurants and juice bars. I had a lovely couple of hours browsing little boutiques and book shops, buying very little (only gifts for the kids and the nieces/nephews) and sipping on ...

The only reason Russ went in was cuz Stu bet him 10 dollars that he wouldn't! the Great Ocean Road is a must see if you travel to Australia ! Every turn is a marvel. We finally arrive at Shirley's paddock and able to stay for a couple nights. Wednesday Shirley took us to Port Fairy for lunch and then to an old volcano crater which we were able to drive through. There we saw emu and kangaroos roaming ...

Di, the owner, is such a lovely lady. Upon arriving she left a note for us explaining she had gone to lunch and was sorry not to be able to greet us. We arrived in our cottage (Canopy) and there were homemade cookies and bird seed awaiting us. We wasted no time in feeding the local parrots, in no time we had Crimson Rosellas, King Parrots and Common Bronzewings feeding from the feeder, much to the delight of our friends from the UK who we took there. There are wonderful bushwalks around the property, and also into the Otways National Park which adjoins the property. My partner and I are already planning our next trip this Winter. Thanks Di! Trish (& UK friends)
