Stevensons Falls

Just back from a wonderfully relaxed week behind Apollo Bay, about 3 hours west of Melbourne.  Great little house, with a wood burner, wide verandas and more than enough wildlife to keep me happy.  Even if the weather was a little damper than I would have hoped for, this only made the waterfalls run better!

I think the whole family needed to 'mellow out' for a bit - and that's exactly what we did.  These are some pictures from Stevensons Falls.  You may get a feel for how lush and damp the place was from these pictures.

The hills behind Apollo Bay are part of the Otway Ranges - which in many places are covered in cool temperate rainforest.  For those of you who have been to the Hoh Rainforest in Washington in the US, it's a very similar kind of place.

Anyway, enough of me - here are some pictures - taken in the rain!









You can find more pictures from around the world here at Our World Tuesday.

If it is a little damp whe3n you go away for a short break, all the better for just relaxing by the fire, or on the verandah with a good book, and just chill out. Looks like you have had a lovely weekend. Have a great week. I'm visiting you today from Our World Tuesday from the "west".

Well at least the falls benefitted from the rain. It looks a beautiful place for some down time.

A perfect sort of place to mellow out ...I love waterfalls. And yes it does seem very like the Hoh rainforest, a place where we’ve camped several times over the years. Just looking at these pictures brought a sense of serenity , a quality somewhat lacking in everyone’s life over here just now.
