An Afternoon at Lorne

Today, with my one of my sisters and brother-in-law (my wonderful hosts for this week), I went out to Lorne, which is situated on the Great Ocean Road. First, we had breakfast at The Farmer’s Place. They’re a newly established café, located on a working farm. They grow their own food, and cook up some fantastic meals. Their bacon and eggs are quite good! Their vision is sustainable food growth.

They are located at 675 Anglesea Road, Freshwater Creek, Victoria, 3217

After breakfast, and a quick return home to pick up my camera, we drove on to Lorne. Lorne is a popular tourist spot, due to its location on the Great Ocean Road. Being a couple of hours from Melbourne, it is seen as an appropriate place to stop for morning tea or lunch. We decided to have lunch there. I took a few photographs of the place. 🙂 Upon our arrival, the sun was out and shining. As the afternoon passed, along came the cloud cover, which rendered some of my photos as quite rubbish.

On the way back, we made a short stop at Airey’s Inlet. There’s a skateboard park there, which also had some swings!

Whee! I haven’t been on a swing in years!

    Looks like you had a great time down at Lorne. Love the photos, they are very nice. Very nice to see a blue sky too, who doesn’t like that 🙂 The photo of the men bringing in the boat looks interesting. Must be heavy and takes a bit of effort to drag such a sizable boat up the shore line.

    I’m not a huge fans of swings myself. Not a fan of heights. But good to hear you enjoyed 🙂

      It was a great day. 🙂 As for the blue sky, it had quickly disappeared after that. The rest of the afternoon was rather overcast and gloomy. Typical coastal weather in August. 🙂
