We’ve been to Australia three times now, twice to Melbourne, and once to Sydney and Tasmania. It’s been an exotic place ever since Bugs Bunny first introduced me to it, and when the chance came, we decided to spend some time driving around the island. On one overcast and rainy day, we drove down to Cape Tourville to see the bay – what you can’t tell is that I’m underneath an umbrella, desperately trying to get the pano shot before more raindrops fall on the lens. And what you really can’t tell is my wife in the car, laughing at me, because she’s dry and warm!
We often go to the Denver Botanic Gardens for their Blossoms of Light event – a great family tradition, and all the better when it’s a white Christmas. We have a shot at one again this year, so here’s hoping!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
On our trip to Victoria, Australia we revisited our previous route along the Great Ocean Road. Last time we didn’t have a chance to head down Cape Otway and see the lighthouse, so we made a point to add it to the itinerary. We visited on a blustery October day, with the wind biting and cold. I can only imagine what it would have been like to be on the water during a storm at night, when through the blackness shines a light in the distance, guiding you from the shoals towards a safe port.
