Today we went to Lorne. It was of course a different type of trip, since the weather is not beach weather anymore. From the inside of the car it looked like Summer though. Everything outside looked so green and luscious, there was no sign anywhere that it was Autumn. The sun warmed my skin through the window as I drove on the Great Ocean Road and devoured the scenery with all my senses, enjoying every metre of traveled road.
In Lorne we did the typical walk, ate, drank but, we also added a bit of a bushwalk. Climbing the steep hill from the beach we reach Teddy's Lookout. I can't believe I managed to get up there, every inch of my body was aching and my legs begged me to stop. I had to stop 4 or 5 times to catch my breath and be careful not to fall backwards as sustaining the angle required to stay straight needed concentration, determination and strength.
Once up there the view was phenomenal and worth the patch of sweat on my back. The bush walk was fun and I took lots of photos of rusted coloured trees that had been back burnt, against fresh green foliage.
More coffee and chips signaled the end of the day (way too early now that day light savings is over).
