Travelling in the time of Coronavirus 8 – Home in Australia

Egret hunting in Koroit Creek

Free as a bird

After 14 days locked in the Gilded Cage of enforced quarantine

It was such a relief to be out in the fresh air and sunshine

On my bicycle

On my favourite loop around the bay

And then time to get the Mighty Breva on the Road

Over the last 10 or so years I have avoided the Great Ocean Road as a ride

The road has become blocked with tourists coaches heading for the main attractions along the road

So I had missed the grand vistas looking along the cliffs and across the ocean

The bike in the rhythm of the winding road as it winds along the cliff face, and through the forests

But this day the roads were empty, the sun shone upon me and the joy of riding this magnificent piece of road was one again enjoyed unhindered.

  1. Glad you made it home in one piece ( no pun intended) and can enjoy some of the magnificent scenery near home. Stay healthy!

  2. Strong overtones of freedom in this post Mick! Glad you’re free again and on the road. xx

  3. A ride around the GOR without tourists. Nice. I was looking for destinations for a much needed ride.

      1. Yes it is but I think I will get another ride along there soon. Mmm not as spooky as London with no people. That was really spooky. Let me know if your coming for a ride.
