[photos] Australia: The Great Ocean Road

Having finally left the B-24 behind, we drove on down through Geelong and on to Anglesea, where we picked up the Great Ocean Road. And had a massive lunch. After that, we toured down to Lorne before turning inland once again through some gorgeous hills.

We finally find a beach I can walk on to, only to discover a menace from the skies.
