A while ago I heard about a new Social Media site called Steller. To be honest I can’t quite remember how I heard about it, but I joined up, got the app for my phone and then forgot all about it. Typical of me sometimes. Then the other day my friend Chris put it up on her site and I said, “hey what is it”. She told me about it and when I went to get it I realised I already had it.

Time is getting away from me and I have so much work on at the moment, which is good, but then again means that spending time here is sacrificed. I wanted to do a post on a new social media site I’ve been using, but it will have to wait for now, so instead I have another image from my trip along the Great Ocean Road.

Giving images names can be so hard and I try not to do it too often, but I think if the post is just going to be about one image, I should make an attempt to name it.

The Cape Nelson Lighthouse was a little like the Port Fairy one, out on it’s own and, perhaps, left to the elements. The cliff that this one sits on, I can imagine, would get very windy and there wouldn’t be a lot of shelter from the elements. Even the day Pam, Mike and I were there we could see that. It wasn’t a bad day as far as the weather went, but you can sense that it could be really rough and really cold in winter when the wind picked up.

The 12 Apostles would have to be one of the most photographed natural wonders in Australia. They are right up there with the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru. Over 2 million visitors a year, not bad for a country that only has 24 million people living in it. When you are there you will find loads of tourist buses arriving from Melbourne filled with overseas visitors who want to see the wonders of the Great Ocean Road and this spot is the main draw card.

The trip along the Great Ocean Road was fantastic and I got to see many parts that I haven’t seen before, then others that I haven’t seen since I was a child. It is a magical part of the country and having two people in the car that have never seen it before saying “wow” over and over was quite wonderful. Pam and Mike loved it and thought it was special.

This time last week I was getting ready for 5 days down the Great Ocean Road. I was going to be traveling with Pam and Mike from California who had been in Australia for over 2 months and this was to be their last week here. I felt honoured that they wanted to spend it with me. It was going to be a lot fun traveling along the Great Ocean Road.

I’ve spent the last two days with my Californian friends and it has been so much fun showing them around Melbourne. I am also really excited about our trip down to the Great Ocean Road over the next few days as well.

I’m not sure what I will do with the blog while I’m away, but I will try and get a couple of updates done.

It has been a funny old week, I’ve had another article published, but I’ve also been waiting for tradesman to contact me about work that we need done to our house. The problem with owning houses is you have to pay for things when they break, unfortunately. We have let some things go for too long and now they are going to cost a fortune to fix. It has been a big lesson for us. So in between all that I’ve been trying to get some work done.

This week has seen some changes with how things are done here on the blog. I do hope you have liked what I’ve started doing. I do feel I neglected it for too long, so nice to be getting back into it.

Once again here are the photos that I have had up on Instagram this week. A bit of a variety, then again, I think there usually is. I usually put photography tips with each image and if you want to read those, then you might have to take a look at my Instagram account, or my Facebook page.

Here is a gallery with those images.
