Portland

From our travels in December… We stayed in Portland, Victoria for a few nights.  It was surprisingly cold while we were there given that it was summer.  While there we headed out to Cape Bridgewater to have a look at the views.  There were supposed to be blowholes here but we didn’t see any, just some spectacular waves crashing against the rocks.

After we left Cape Bridgewater we headed down a dirt road… How Many More Minutes? ~ Cape Bridgewater, Victoria …and found this view.  Amazing to see how rough the sea was that day.
