Day 9 - Port Apollo to Anglesea

Final day of tour #1

Today brought to a close the first tour and what a way to finish.  We had an amazing ride along the Great Ocean Road with vistas to die for, the photos will speak for themselves.  There was a swirling wind that became pretty strong by the end of the ride but it was a lovely temperature and it did not rain.  The route was coastal with rolling hills but nothing onerous.  Once we reached Anglesea we had lunch and then travelled by van back to Melbourne.  We concluded this part of the tour with a group dinner at a local Greek restaurant.

So far for me it has been 663km/414mi.
