082.8/365 . Sunset At Warrnambool | Australia Week

Made it to Stingray Bay in time for sunset. The quiet waves had smoothed the untouched sand. As each wave slowly ebbed, leaving behind an imperceptible dampness, the sky was reflected almost perfectly in the wet sand.

082.6/365 . The Twelve Apostles | Australia Week

Saw the Twelve Apostles! Well, there are actually only eleven of them after one collapsed in 2005 after years of erosion from the oncoming waves. It’s a scene that has been photographed countless times by people from all over the world, but it’s really quite something to see it in person! The ocean here is in some pretty amazing color, it’s this crazy brilliant turquoise blue!

082.4/365 . Nature Around The Lighthouse | Australia Week

There were some gardens/forests around the Cape Otway Lighthouse, so we went to have a look! It’s sort of late spring, so the forest is this really amazing shade of grey. The colors of biological life there are absolutely unusual, from rust colored leaves, to powder blue lichen, to the orange stars of pollen upon a iridescent purple flower centre.

082.3/365 . Cape Otway Lighthouse | Australia Week

Went up a lighthouse! Awesome view from up there! Just the horizon and the open sea, stretching far out. Had to come down eventually because of the cold and strong winds!

082.2/365 . Wild Koalas | Australia Week

Saw wild koala bears on the road leading to the Cape Otway Lighthouse! Turns out that there were tons of them all wedged between branches of the hundreds of Eucalyptus trees on both sides of the roads! They’re very slow moving creatures, so they weren’t instantly noticeable! Extremely cute!

081.7/365 . Dusk At Apollo Bay | Australia Week

Walked back to the motel, under a brilliant deep blue sky. I could stay here the rest of my life, the skies are so clear, so immense. And when the sun finally sets, the stars that you can see number in the gazillions.

081.6/365 . Dinner At La Bimba | Australia Week

Seafood dinner! Freshly caught stuff, love the interior setting of the place! The dessert was very interesting, each of the items on the dessert platter is inspired by a specific flower (and carries the appropriate scents), so the dessert is called a “flower garden”.

081.5/365 . Arrived At Apollo Bay | Australia Week

Arrived at Apollo Bay sometime in the evening! Finally saw the coastline and beach after spending the earlier half of the day driving inland. The ocean is in this breathtaking shade of cerulean blue! It’s still rather cold, the car dashboard shows outside temperature of 8 deg. C, so summer hasn’t really arrived yet. Staying at the town here for tonight!
