Across ‘The Rip’- 12 Feb

After a wonderful evening with Sas, we headed south to Sorrento. After a good breakfast, we toured around Portsea, gasping at all the multi- millionaires’ houses. Returning to Sorrento Pier, we drove onto the ferry and a quick and smooth forty minutes later, we were driving off the other side into Queenscliff.

For the next few hours, we dawdled around the Bellarine Peninsula, We drove through Queenscliff, and out to Port Lonsdale Lighthouse. It gave us a great view back across to Sorrento/Portsea. Next stop was Ocean Grove, where the cliff top ocean- facing homes are spectacular. They are much more modern in design than Portsea!

After continuing as far as Barwon Heads, we turned northwards to Geelong. We checked out the new Spirit of Tasmania terminal. We didn’t find Geelong particularly impressive except for the cheap diesel prices, so decided to drive back out on the Bellarine to Portarlington for a late lunch/early dinner.

We found this weirdly wonderful Cafe called ‘Saints and Sailors’, and we both had delicious meals.

Just a short drive down the road to Saint Leonards and we are ensconced for the evening in a comfortable well-appointed B&B.
