The Great Ocean Road

We went on a day trip along the Great Ocean Road..which is so gorgeous and we are so lucky to have it in our bckyard here in Victoria. Pictured are the four kids playing at Cumberland River. Mia caught a fih with her bare hands just sconds after I took this image.
This is the image I took of us descending from the mountains just above a lovely cove alon the great ocean road. We were four wheel driving in a national park and I could not help but take an image of what we could see... and I wish I could bring you the sounds of the birds around us as well as the smell of the lovely trees and flowers..mixed with the ocean.
The kids are still tired, as are us parents, from our trip along some notorious beaches. Anglesea, Torquay, Lorne and Cumberland... breath taking anda must see if you are comin to Victoria.
Tomorrow is set to be 36 degrees celcius, I dare say it will be warmer than that by mid afternoon.

The Aussie bush is an awesome place to unwind and explore in. The sounds, the smells, let alone the sights. I'll get to travel the GOR one of these days... it's on my "To Do" list, i swears!

Jayne said...

Isn't that called "tickling a fish" to catch it like that?
Beautiful photos, Cazzie, glorious places :)

Just lovely. I can't wait to get back down to Victoria and do some exploring. I miss the ocean so much even after so many years of living away from it.

I haven't been out that way in years. I'd love to do that trip again. Maybe in a few years we can all go together, when Elspeth's a bit bigger!! hehe

Andrew, she sure is brave, she never ceases to amaze me either.

Mal, it sure is an awesome place mate. I so want to live there, but our work is in the big smoke ..for now :(

Jayne, I think you may be right... cute isn't it.

Foxy, when you get here we will tag along with you..the kids would all get along so well! Tomas is 12 like your boy and my girls would love Em.

Stace, you are on babyyy!

We are so lucky having the bush not so far away...I know what you mean about the sounds and sights of the bush...the birdsong around here is amazing - you are giving your kids such a good childhood...and making good memories
