Great Ocean Road

I gotta say travelling with a baby under one years old is way under rated.

We're in the middle of attempting the Great Ocean Road and we've been loving it. Maybe it's just our Poppy girl who seems to love being out and about but I have to say if you can, try it. She's crawling now but she's still not hard to manage. She still sleeps enough for us to get a good stint of driving in before we have to stop again. Fingers crossed she keeps up the good behaviour!

We've been able to take this week because over the last 6/7 weeks Dan has been on paternity leave. He still has about 5 weeks to go. His work is wonderful and they offer paternity leave of 12 weeks to males if the spouse goes back to work full-time within the first year of the child's life. We jumped at it. I got the week off work and we just packed up the car and went. We stopped in on my sister and her family in Melb's for a few days and we've been on the road for a couple of days exploring the GOR.

Dan is loving life. I can't help but think that later on in life when I look back I'll think about this time as the time of our lives. I'm trying to savor every moment.

So far this is where we've stopped on our way and through the Great Ocean Road.

Bells Beach
Sugarloaf – where we stayed on our first night
Apollo Bay
Cape Otway Lightstation
Three Sisters*
Loch and Gorge*
London Bridge
Port Fairy*

*Highly recommend stopping at these spots

We are currently in Port Fairy nestled in for the night in this super cute cottage at Clonmara Cottages and from what I've seen of the township so far I like it! Looking forward to hitting the town tomorrow for a cafe breakfast and some exploring of their harbour.

Please enjoy some photos of parts of our journey so far. More to come when I get them off my camera!
