Having left the warm blue skies of Melbourne it was a little disconcerting to spend most of the trip to Apollo Bay under ominous grey skies. Not only that, but the wind had picked up again which when you're driving something the size of a house becomes a little difficult to control.

The drive to our destination gave us our first glimpse of the Great Ocean Road, which I must say is pretty spectacular. However the fact that this was a Sunday and somewhere there must have been a bikers rally, cos the road was packed with all sorts of bikers. All eager to overtake on the sharp bends on the wrong side of the road. Sunday must also be when the locals do a bit of sightseeing as well, because it wasn't just the bikers and the tourist, many irrate Holden or Ford drivers found themselves behind our lumbering house on wheels.

Nevermind, you learn to zone out after a while and forget about the long line of traffic behind you ;o)

On driving down the esplanade I noticed a shop advertising surf lessons, another opportunity to show the world what I can do on a big foam board. After we parked the van at the site, booking a lesson for tomorrow would be our top priority. Luckily for us the grey skies only hugged the hilltops surrounding Apollo Bay, letting way to blue skies and sunshine pretty much up to the beach.

The rest of the day would be taken up with walks along the beach front, catching up on a little light ready and dripping ice cream down ourselves (Wendy).
