Colac Otways Region; Sat 20 October

Marty & I took a ride through the Otways along part of the Great Ocean Road, then back over the ranges. It's a pretty familiar 300 km+ circuit to us - but nonetheless magnificient every time. The weather is always different as are the road conditions and people we meet. It was a magnificient Spring day - all blue sky and virtually no wind.

We called in at the Otway Estate Vineyard as we were dining there later that night with out families and friends the Kellys & Fosters (see earlier Norton Commando & BSA pics). I took a few pics of the sculptures in the gardens as I really like some of them.
Check out the tools used to make them - really interesting and creative.

Stopped off at Gellibrand store for a drink and a chat then continued on to Apollo Bay via the GOR. Hardley any traffic going our way so we made really good time.

In Apollo Bay we saw a dozen or so women on Harleys doing a GOR trip as part of a breast cancer awareness promotion. I think that these riders were all breast cancer survivors. Some of their riding was being filmed so I wouldn't be surprised to see them on TV soon.
