Four Seasons in One Day

Inky and I made our way back the the big Victorian cities by way of the M1, which runs through what I could best describe as "Small town Australia." Google Colac Victoria, and you'll get the gist. Along the way, we hung a right at the aforementioned town and took a small, windy mountain road down to the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk (pictured right) which is a huge system of metal walkways through the rain forest. You bounce along the slim catwalks among the canopy of the rain forest and you get amazing views.

We spent Tuesday evening in Geelong, which is the home town of the Footy team that I follow. We stopped at the stadium store so we could get our gear for the game we are going to on Friday night, and needless to say, I was like a kid in a candy store. We got the chance to walk along Corio Bay before some bad weather blew in, and settled in for the night.

After dropping the car off at the airport on Wednesday morning we made our way to St. Kilda which is a trendy and cool city suburb. From the time we left Warrnambool to the time we got to St. Kilda the temperature must have gone down by 10 US degrees. Today we are just south of the Queen Victoria Markets and its about 55 out. I guess its true what they say about Melbourne weather, you really can get all 4 seasons in just one day.
