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)

... to give it a go! We rented a couple wetsuits and a board and made our way to the beach. Now I must preface this a bit... Though I consider myself a strong swimmer and very comfortable in the ocean, and I own a surfboard which lives under my deck in Calgary, and I have been on a surfboard a dozen or so times, I would not consider myself a surfer. Perhaps for Canada standards I could pass, but by no means to the point that I should teach someone ...
We made a few stops on our way from Apollo Bay to Melbourne - hi-lights included the "no u-turn" signs on the Great Ocean Road, the tribute memorial to the WWI vets who built the road and Bells Beach. The sun was not perfect all day, but still some good ...
... Our first stop was a waterfall, although it has to be said it suffered from "looking better in the picture". It was here that the weather tipped into the wetter end of the scale as we took a slight drenching. We weren’t the only ones mind, as we spotted Linda and Ray’s first kookaburra – possibly the fluffiest one we’ve seen yet – a definite victim of the rain as he sat drying out and looking ...
... Stopped at a town called Ocean Grove & then Queenscliff an old town that's located on the entrance to Port Philip Harbour. There's a narrow entrance between 2 headlands where you can watch all the ships passing on their way into Melbourne. Visited the Maritime Museum which was about local history, mostly it seemed collisions & accidents at sea- not a great thing to commemorate we thought. We're going out to a local restaurant with Jo, Stu & Poppy this evening to ...
... Then wanting wifi we head back to the dunes where I take a couple photos of the sun setting and we use the wifi for Facebook and other shizzle. At around ten to ten we headed back to the campsite (Jay happily driving this time) and set the bed up and plug the van in. But not before I have a mini heart attack over losing the purse. The purse is like a lifeline! So important! I knew I'd had it in my hand when we came out of the supermarket and I didn't get it out at the beach ...
