Port Fairy to Robe was an entirely uneventful trip – except for the pouring rain that started as soon as we got to Robe! Fortunately the weather was a bit better (though VERY windy( and we did a bit of a walk in the Port Fairy area and Continue reading
Before leaving Apollo Bay we did a drive around the town and I was once again impressed by how pretty the town is and how gorgeous the ocean is around these parts – and all along the Great Ocean Road so far really. From just south of Continue reading
