Great Ocean Road - Victoria - Australia

Our trip to Australia had so many highlights...this being one of them!
The 13 hour day on the Great Ocean Road on the Southern Ocean was spectacular!
This is one shot of the London Bridge...

...this is another.
I could have spent the entire 13 hours right here, but, there was so much more!

...of course I have to get more than one perspective of each bend in the coastline!

The colors changed with the cloudy sky...brilliant moments of sunshine and then rain.

sea caves...

The rock  formations seem to just float on top of the azure seas!

This is all part of Port Campbell National Park...106 km (66 miles) of sheer beauty!

This is Loch Ard Gorge.
It is named after the Lock Ard Ship which is only one of about 700 ship wrecks along this stretch of coast line.

The Rocks seem to be suspended in air...water passes beneath!
The Twelve Apostles are just up the road from here...tomorrow's post!

Wonderful photos of The Great Ocean Road. I especially love 6,7 and 8. We drove along the Great Ocean Road March 2010 but had too little time to really enjoy the Twelve Apostles. Maybe next time....
