More Rocks and Sea

We have had a day out and a couple of evenings looking up and down the coast near Port Campbell at all the rock features. The weather has been very kind to us, cloudy days starting out but by late morning the sky starts to clear.  After a while it becomes a bit like ‘not another rock’. But there are lots of them and Allthego cut loose and has taken a lot of snaps of the rocks. One might suggest too many! So here are a few of them, not too many!

 

Gibson’s Steps down to the beach to see Gog and Maygog from a different angle! About 70 metres, more or less straight down the cliff in a zig zag.

Gog and Maygog from down on the beach, they look totally different from this angle than from on top of the cliffs looking down.

 

London Bridge is no more of course, with the first arch having collapsed back in 1990, now it is called London Arch. We recall seeing the actual formation before the arch collapsed and remember the tale of the two tourists who had just crossed over it before it went down and had to be rescued by helicopter from the new stack! Nearby is the Grotto, a sink hole with a window to the sea. And Loch Ard Gorge site of the famous ship wreck.

‘Window to the ‘, at the bottom of the Grotto looking out to sea.

The sunsets we saw were not spectacular events, there are many postcards and books in the shops showing amazing sunsets, but they were still a little special, if not for simply showing the Apostles in different moods.

 

The sun has set with a clear blue sky, no clouds to be seen, but a bit of sea mist to provide a hazy warm glow to the sky and rocks.

Another day the sky was cloudy, but a gap in the clouds appeared just as the sun went down and painted the clouds with colour.

 

We are off inland next on a food trail through the Port Campbell hinterland, chocolate, cheese, ice cream and whiskey!
