The Australians celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s birthday today, even though it’s not really her birthday on this date. Nevertheless, it was a public holiday with all schools closed, so we used the opportunity to explore the Great Ocean Road – one of Australia’s great natural wonders. This is where many of south Australia’s surfing beaches are located.
Our first stop was Bell’s Beach and it was a short stop, but YouDee was ready to hang ten.
The landscape was spectacular, and this was one of the surprisingly few lighthouses on the coast.
My version of an artsy picture:
A little further down the road, we stopped for roadside morning tea (provided by John, our tour driver). The students wandered down to the beach area and everyone looked pretty happy including Jeff, Rachel and Lissy, Kelsey, Megan, and Kathy (doing her “I’m happy today” move)
