a famous sighting along a famous drive.

what is it with me running into people who are famous whilst i am in australia that i didn’t even know were famous. i know it’s hard to tell from the back of his head, but that guy in the picture is singer-songwriter xavier rudd. i took this picture at chris’s in apollo bay where we stopped to eat lunch on sunday as we toured the great ocean road.

i didn’t even know who xavier rudd was, but my host, having heard my story about alan joyce pointed him out to me and explained the guy’s popularity. no maybe he was having a go at me (like how i am picking up the lingo?) but i doubt it.

either way the food was incredible at chris’s and the view was even more spectacular.

as for the great ocean road, i don’t even know how to describe it. i am sure most of you are probably immune to that coastline now, but for a kid like me, who’s experience with the ocean are the relatively tame coastlines of the north atlantic, this was nothing short of staggering.

seriously, every vista took my breath away and literally made me gasp like a kid. i have seen few things in my life that compare to it.

just thought you might enjoy an outsider’s glee.

below is the obligatory money shot of me at the twelve apostles.
