Melbourne July 24th & July 25th

Hi are a few more photos then I intended to send but it's hard to pick and choose. These are about our drive along the Great Ocean Road out of Melbourne,a ship wreck, a fantastic Australian breakfast, Otway Fly Tree Top Walk, the Twelve Apostles, several different signs along the highway that I thought you'd enjoy. Back in Melbourne today we visited the Fitzroy Gardens, a miniture tutor village, John Kennedy memorial, had a view of Melbourne from the tallest building's observation deck. On Phillips Island we visited our new home for tonight...questionable outside...then drove to Churchill Island to visit a working farm where we saw them shear a sheep and held a baby lamb. This evening we watched the Blue Penguins walk ashore after dark. A great day and the hostel has turned out to be pretty good after all. They have WI-FI and that's a big plus. Also laundry facilities so we're getting some clean clothes. Hope you enjoy.
