April 7th Apollo Bay to Geelong

Nanny Milly Karen & Vicki at Apollo Bay

Saying sad goodbyes to Karen and family set off on the return drive via the GOR back to Geelong.  We decided not to drive via Colac as we had seen lots of bush land on the day’s drive and wanted to enjoy the morning sunshine on the ocean. We enjoyed the views in the return direction and Kevin really enjoyed the challenging driving.

We stopped at the Lorne Bakery for a meat pie (for Kev) and a coffee break.  The remainder of the journey was enjoyable and uneventful through the road works and past lots of tourist areas..  At Torquay Kevin stopped at the Tiger Moth World to meet the owner and stayed chatting whilst Nanny and I drove to Breamlea to kill time.  We could not get to see the beach from the road so returned back to the airfield to collect Kevin.  He reluctantly came out and we continued on our way back to the Taberner’s home via the shops where we bought food for dinner.

The sun was still shining; the temperature about 26 degrees and it was a perfect end to two very enjoyable days.
