Great Ocean Road: Teddy’s Lookout

Teddy’s Lookout was our last pit-stop along Great Ocean Road. Towards the end, it was a race against the setting sun. Although we didn’t make it to the Twelve Apostles, that gave us greater reason to return again.

Spring was near. But stubborn winter winds decidedly stopped us from dipping our toes into the clear, inviting waters. Sorry as we were for intruding on a trio of nude sunbathers, from the depths of our hearts we applauded their love for summer in this piercing cold.

Thus began our Great Ocean Road Trip. The first stop, Geelong. Here, we paused for fish & chips under the supervision of gawking seagulls. And danced bolly-bolly around tall, brightly painted bollards.

I’ve been rather slack in posting lately, which may be attributed to my new weekly schedule of running and yoga. Gotta shed those extra pounds before my jeans quit on me. It’s kinda masochistic, but I think it’s beautiful, the way perspiration glistens in the sun.

Located at a corner of Prahran Market, Market Lane Coffee is a beautiful and leisurely way of squandering a day away. A packet of their seasonal blend beans has me started on a morning coffee routine. Nothing beats waking up to the smell of fresh grounded coffee.
