A Day Trip to Lorne

Day 5 - Wednesday 15 May 2013

Kirrily had the day off today so we decided on a trip to Lorne on the Great Ocean Road for lunch. The day turned out overcast with increasing showers as the day went on. We followed the M1 Freeway from Melbourne to Geelong, but bypassed Geelong and headed for Torquay for our first stop.

After leaving Torquay we followed the Great Ocean Road to Anglesea then on to Lorne. On the way we made a couple of photo stops, between the showers.

When we arrived at Lorne it was raining again so we cruised up and down the Esplanade looking for a place to eat. Being a wet day in May there was not too much open - with shops and restaurants mainly closed. Finally we settled on the Lorne Hotel and had a very nice lunch. After lunch we returned to Melbourne by the same route with increasing showers arriving back at Melbourne at peak hour.
