And why wouldn’t you go to the beach in the middle of winter?

That’s just how we roll, people.

Saturday we decided to go for a drive to Ocean Grove, which is about 90 minutes from Melbourne.  Once we got there, we decided to keep going, all the way along the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay.

We did stop a few times along the way, and for the first time in my life I visited Bells Beach, which is famous for hosting a leg of the world surfing championships.

As you can probably tell, the weather wasn’t the best. But that didn’t stop this surfer!

Anyway, we had a great day.  The Great Ocean Road is stunning and if you visited me I would take you there, instead of Wodonga.

    If I ever visit I will take you up on that. I grew up on the ocean and at times I miss it more than I allow myself to remember.

    Wow, what for a nice trip! I miss the ocean very much! And I would love to surf – but never tried, too fearful for it… OK, if ever I go to this part I’ll let you know! (I really want to go to Australia one day – soon would be the best word!!!! Maybe next year… who knows!? In the meantime, I keep on looking at your nice pictures!)

    That looks just beautiful!!!
