Finding Something?

Great Ocean Road

As the helicopter hovered over the sheer limestone cliffs of the Twelve Apostles, I look down upon the Great Ocean Road. Taking in all of its splendor, all at once, can be quite overwhelming. From this vantage point, though, it is easy to understand why this harrowing stretch of asphalt and concrete is considered Victoria’s most scenic drive: the irregular coastlines, the deep cliffs, and the thunderously roaring waves make for a quintessentially Australian postcard shot.

I came to understand the real charm of the experience way before the chopper blades turned, though. The simple yet, oftentimes, elusive pleasure of walking barefoot along the sandy beach by the Loch Ard Gorge, with the gentle waves tickling my toes, had set the tone for a wonderful afternoon ahead.
