I'm just about to start the second day of my Great Ocean Road tour with the Wayward Bus. Seventeen people on this tour, an odd number of them speak French and German. I'm going to have to brush up on the Francais if I want to figure out what's going on. We spotted an echidna on the road yesterday, one of only two monotremes (egg-laying mammals) in the world. The other is the duck-billed platypus. Another highlight was spotting wild koalas in the trees on the way to Apollo Bay where we hosteled for the evening. We pulled the trailer right under it and had a closer look as it munched on eucalyptus leaves. These guys just eat and sleep all day. Nice.
I had toast in front of this 5 foot square window overlooking the ocean. It was a very Hopperesque scene. This trip is finally shaping up. I think I needed a rest from big waterfront cities. Gotta hit the road!
