Victor Harbour detour 30.12.2008

Phil again kindly invited me to join him to Belinda parent’s house located down south in Goolwa which is quite near some of the best beaches in South Australia especially for surfing with strong waves most of the time. Yeah, of coz, i’m more than happy to join :) It’s still holiday mood around this time (end of DEC 2008), so i should made the most out of it, rite??

And he did a detour to bring me around to Goolwa beach and victor harbour together with his fren which made me really excited, wahaha.

Goolwa beach, a long stretch of beach. The wind was so strong that it blown up the sand as well. But too bad the weather dun look nice for surfing, otherwise, Phil and his fren are going to surf with the waves, haha. According to them, they are a bit old dy, and dun felt like surfing in this cold weather, haha.

Next, after they decided not to surf, we continued on to Victor harbour. A famous beautiful town by the cove, alot of retirees sold their house and bought one here for the rest of their life to enjoy the remaining days peacefully and RELAX. It’s not something we seen in Malaysian culture. Usually, it’s just a small house enough to house the old couple and abit of garden to keep them bz with compared to their more comfortable and bigger house in the city or suburbs.

Along the drive, we stopped by a while. This is a contemporary aboriginal piece of art on the klenings hill lookout point. We were heading for the ‘the bluff’ down at the end of victor harbour (the small hill shown in the bottom right small picture below). Wondered why it’s call ‘the bluff’?? Haha, tell ya what, i ALSO DUNO…..hehe.

Here we are at – ‘the bluff’. I just love this place. From here, you can get stunning view of the coastal line and sea. Really love them. But to sit down there to enjoy the panoramic view, WEAR MORE!!! IT’s damn cold and windy.

Funny though, how these trees adapt to the weather here. The wind causes these tress to grow in one directional.

Well, we din stay on the bluff long, coz Phil has to go back to pick up Belinda while his fren has to go back to the city. Anyway, it’s just too cold to stay there for long.

We stopped by the famous Port Elliot bakery, claimed the best for meat pie by Phil and said i must try. He even claimed that, after i tried the meat pie here, there won’t be any nicer than this in SOuth Australia. It might be quite true to me, cause there always a long queue outside this small bakery shop twice i passed by. There are a variety of meat pie to choose from, ranging from mushroom, pork, chicken……and also other bakeries - breads, doughnuts…etc. I had my beacon and potato meat pie, it tasted GREAT. wahaha, hot and freshly baked :)

After that, we went back to Belinda parents’ house and bid farewell to Phil’s fren. Stayed there a while then it’s time to go back :)
