I remember very little about our flight from Perth to Melbourne, so I must have gotten some sleep! I know I was tired enough that I should have!! We landed in Melbourne at about 5:30 AM, and lo and behold, there to meet us at baggage was Janice!! She had no problem finding us (Rex tends to stand out in a crowd) and the airport crowds at 5:30 AM are not dense. So off we went! I have to admit that I snoozed a bit on the ride from the airport to Kerrianne's house in Geelong, which is about 50 miles southwest of Melbourne. Geelong is the second largest city in Victoria, and it's also a port city. I think something like 90% of Australia's population lives on the coast, so it's no surprise that almost all of the women I've met live near the ocean. It was fitting, then, that today's adventure was a drive along the Great Ocean Road! We picked up Kerrianne and Shelley, who had flown in from Sydney to play with us, and we all squeezed into Janice's car. It was so fun to be reunited with three such fun girls, and of course, it was Rex's first time to meet Janice and Kerrianne. Off we went!
Here are some of our first glimpses of the ocean:
....but he did make sure we had plenty of chips - he ordered two orders of them, not realizing that we all got some with our steak sandwiches!
At Kerrianne's house, we were in for another treat - a bit of a barbie! Darren had things well under control, and Janice had brought some of her yummy chocolate slice, and soon there was quite the spread in front of us - prawns, burgers, sausages, potato salad, green salad, and more! Yum!!
