I love Apollo Bay with the exception of the the wind. I have woken up the last 3 days and it is overcast and cloudy. I went to Mariners Falls yesterday which is a 12km bike ride from the hostel. After that, you hike in about a 1/2 mile and see some beautiful forest and of course, the waterfalls. I enjoyed the ride and it was definitely worth the ride. Molly and Reg, the owners of the hostel, let me use their bike which is always a bonus.
Today, i will wait for the weather to break and hopefully, go for a walk to the next town over. I love the coast, but the ocean is frigid. I like the idea of laying out/lounging on the beach, but with the weather as such, I don't have many options. I know that I shouldn't complain seeing that the weather in the States in snowing and/or freezing. I will be quiet now.
From here, I will return to Melbourne where I have a room for the next 3 days. I have heard that Melbourne is a fantastic city and it did feel that way on Friday during my 8 hour stretch.
I hope that all is well and that you are keeping warm. I am learning how to occupy myself in someone else's home while the weather sucks!
