We packed up in the pouring rain with a huge cross wind today!!!! Not good! Thankfully Roger came to our aid and helped us get the camper trailer tent folded down….it wasn’t co-operating. Truth be told it was flapping madly! The three of us managed to get it down and the cover on eventually, but got absolutely sodden in the process. The kids had been rapidly shoved into the dry car, whilst we did our best battling the elements! We watched Roger and Michelle drive off with their caravan…and felt so cold, so wet and so, well envious. Daniel stripped off and changed into warmer clothes (he was turning blue). I thought I wasn’t too wet, but after driving for about an hour I was shivering so badly my teeth were chattering! It was then that we noticed this white stuff on the side of the road….was it snow? Ice? We think now that it was Hail! We were once again on the Great Ocean Road, heading for The 12 Apostles, London Bridge and all that makes this particular drive worthwhile!
We pulled up at The carpark for The 12 Apostles and came face to face with Michelle and Roger again. After a quick toilet stop in the Information centre, and a complete change of clothes & more thick jumpers for me….we were on our way out to see the sea! It was very very cold! The wind was whipping our hair onto our faces, the air…fresh, the ocean ferocious! And then it hailed!
Over-all a memorable day!
