We decided to go to Barwon Heads for morning tea with Sister. It was drizzling by then. By the time we had eaten our muffins and drank our coffee, it had stopped. We set out for the rocks in the distance and lo, the sun came out and it was quite nice. Not expecting sunshine, none of us were dressed for any water activity. Never mind, it did not stop R and Little Jo rolling up their pants and getting quite wet.
Now this is a bad outcome. Locals and many others wanted the bridge across the Barwon River to Barwon Heads saved. It was a dual lane timber bridge and had a load limit placed on it. A ghastly new pedestrian bridge has been built next to the historic bridge and the historic bridge repaired, but look what they have done. A hideous concrete deck sits on the old timber foundations. There is another route further up river where a new bridge could have been built and the old one remain as it was with minor repairs. I am not sure who is responsible for this site, but I can guess. Reportage more to my liking. The Greens have a go. No surprise that ex Planning Minister Madden was involved.
From inside the cafe looking out. I don't know what the cafe is called.
Part of the cafe was Diver Dan's boatshed in the ABC tv series Seachange.
Looking towards Ocean Grove, a town that is having a huge growth spurt.
And a happy 21st birthday to Owen.
A cliff top rises along the beach and a caravan park sits atop the cliff. For Mother's seventieth birthday, Sister paid for a weekend cabin for Mother and late Step Father. It was beautiful with great sea views and the sounds of waves lapping the beach. Mother loved it. Gosh, that was six years ago. Rather a lot has happened since then.
