Foto Friday: Archimage

Arch, Great Ocean Rd., Victoria, Australia Dec. 2000Arch, Great Ocean Rd., Victoria, Australia
Dec. 2000

I've tried to find the real name of this object, but everything just comes up "Arch". This is on the Great Ocean Road, which runs along the southeast coast of Australia, southwest of Melbourne. We drove from Adelaide to Melbourne, and a few hours from Melbourne there are a number of beautiful bays with islands, like the 12 Apostles.

Erm, that's pretty much all I have to say about it. I was going to put up a different image, but I decided that those scans were all out of focus, and needed to be redone.

OK, here's the official Great Ocean Road website, and since it's so cool, a route planner for driving within Victoria. Put in "Melbourne" to start and "Port Campbell" to finish. And then it'll ask you if you want Melbourne 3000 or Melbourne 3004. Hell, I don't know, but Melbourne 3000 will be the city center. The route it gave me did not actually go along the coast. You're gonna wanna take dat left toin at Albuq -- er -- Geelong to drive along the coast.

Dagnabbit, you young whippersnappers don't know how good you have it, by gum. When I took this trip, back in the Year Aught, we didn't have no fancy schmancy web-based travel guides. We had to make do with static maps on dead trees! And they was hard to fold! And the good Lord help you if you lost your way, because if you was caught out after dark, the bunyips and drop bears would getcha! Why, I knew this one feller...
