People are telling me Christmas is coming. The days are getting longer and temperatures (slowly) getting hotter, but those around me insist that yuletide time is around the corner. I guess technically good ole' xmas day is next week, but for me, in Australia, the holiday couldn't seem more foreign or distant.

It only takes driving down the Great Ocean Road once to realize that you don't wanna drive down it again on the way home. Don't get me wrong, the scenery that the road winds amongst is gorgeous. It's one of those places of beauty that photos don't do justice... beauty of a degree that you can't comprehend until you see it for yourself. You'll also see that the repetitive tight curves of the road can induce motion sickness and that the distance takes forever because of low speed limits and cliff-side squeezes. That's why we took the road up from Skenes Creek and through Forrest on the way home from Port Campbell a few weeks ago, and ended up at the Forrest Brewing Company eating mixed berry cheesecake with marshmallow for lunch.
