Queenscliff sunset

Yesterday we drove to Queenscliff to spend a few days on holiday by the seaside. Yes, it’s winter. Yes, it’s freezing but it’s whale season!! I really want to see a whale! So I’m hoping that while we stay here on the coast I will somehow be in the right place at the right time and catch a glimpse. I’ve never seen a whale in the wild and it’s one of my bucket list items so here’s hoping.

We arrived in time for a late lunch and a nap for me. Yes I’m still napping but I’d been up early, been to the doctor, driven with the family down here and I was ready for some alone time and rest and relaxation.

I woke up just in time for the sunset.

I walked down to Swan Bay to take some shots over the beautiful water and was met with a fierce cold wind that goes straight to your bones! Wow it was cold! But I had fun taking sunset shots, even though my face went numb, and got a few bonus surprises. All afternoon I’d been hearing a train whistle and couldn’t work out what it was. Turns out it was a gorgeous old steam train! Tomorrow I’m going to take a ride on it; I’m pretty excited!

Here’s my evening’s work.
