Geelong, Victoria

A few weeks ago, hubby and I took our dogs for a road trip down to Geelong to have a look at an estate out there to see if we liked the area. But first, we took a slight detour and wound up at the Geelong Waterfront for a nice beach walk.

Geelong is less than an hour from our current house to drive there and the drive is pretty cruisy. Once we found the waterfront and got ourselves a parking space, I stepped out and the views from our carpark were amazing – you could look right out into the bay and all the way down to the boat docks.

People were having parties, barbecues, picnics… if you could do it in a park, it was happening here! There were ferris wheels going… ice-cream trucks every few meters… Sausage sizzles frying up everywhere… There was so much!

 

After our 45 walk up and down the boardwalk, we hopped back in the car to head to an estate that we are interested in. On the way there, just before one of the estates, we see a cars piled up trying to turn down a side road from the highway causing a mountain of congestion and holding us all up. It wasn’t until we drove past said road that we saw the reason why – it was to view a monstrous field of sunflowers! My hubby, being the amazing man that he is, turned around and took me to see them as well, as I had never seen sunflowers in real life before.
It was so magical seeing a whole field of these beautiful flowers and it was unreal how big they really are!

After our stop over to view the pretty flowers, we popped in to Macca’s for some 30 cent cones – which are now in fact 60 cent cones – and made our way around the estate. It was a fun day out, filled with plenty to do, and look forward to what our next adventure to Geelong will bring!
