Our first day in Australia was spent driving along
the Great Ocean Road to the Twelve Apostles.
Here we see Larry standing on the sand dunes
overlooking the Southern Ocean west of Melbourne.

View along the Great Ocean Road. - It reminded us a lot of California Highway 1. Bill at one of the overlooks Our Holden rental car from Avis, with the - driving position on the right, of course. - We had to learn to drive on the left. Bill next to our Holden rental car. - Note how the greenery looks a lot like California. Another view of the coast from an overlook
That's a koala scampering across the road. - It's a bit out of focus because we had to shoot this quickly. We drove out to the Cape Otway lighthouse. - This was our most southern point in Australia. - (We went further south in New Zealand two weeks later.) Our first view of the Twelve Apostles Bill at the visitor's overlook with some of the Twelve Apostles behind him. - We felt right at home with the fog blowing in off the ocean. Some of the Twelve Apostles looking west from the visitor's overlook
