Our World Tuesday - Welcome to Johanna

Just spent a week out West – along The Great Ocean Road at Johanna. The Road was built in the 1930’s as a project during the Depression. The landscape was built over millions of years by the sea and the wild wind.







We stayed in a small cottage on a dairy farm – lots of cows, mooing and other stuff. The beach was a five minute walk from the front door, and in the evening the setting sun lit up the folds and buckles of the landscape. You fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean and you woke to them as well. As you may be able to tell, I liked the place. More posts to follow!

You can find pictures from around our world here at Our World Tuesday.

You can also find the latest post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.


Enjoy the pictures!

Oh great! Another series for me to be completely jealous of ... we've been prevented from travelling the GOR two years in a row now - hopefully 3rd time lucky next year!!

Superb place Stewart. Great views, surf and tidal pools.

The cottages are jut a tad over what we normally go for but who knows, we may yet indulge ourselves.

Have a great week.

Sounds relaxing and heavenly. Were you able to swim or is it too dangerous, sharks etc.,?
