Barwon Heads market and Queenscliff walk

This morning I rode to Barwon Heads market. A bit ambitious but I made it! 10kms to Ocean Grove and maybe another 5kms to Barwon Heads! Think I went the long way around. Seemed quicker coming back. 

Tons of jewellery at the market. Found a lady that makes Kumihimo style pieces! Talked to her for a while in between customers. Also saw the hand sewn seed bead necklaces like Pat and I tried to do at the craft fair. They were selling for only $20. Got some ideas though. May have another bash at it. Bought a pair of earrings made by Koranta who is 19 years old and lives in Lesotho, South Africa. He is an orphan because of the AIDS pandemic.  The Jewels of Hope project helps orphaned children.

Quick lunch in Ocean Grove at the Voodoo Cafe then back to my room for a quick shower and on to Queenscliff for the historical walk. Five others joined me with Ken, our guide, for an hour and a half walk to look at buildings of significance with a few side stories. Afternoon tea at Athelstane House after with two Japanese ladies, Michael (Ken’s stepson) and another Michael and Aileen (who tried to convert me to God! No hope there). 

Meeting Steph at the Queenscliff market tomorrow. Maybe catch up for a coffee. 

Still deciding on where to have dinner tonight. Back to Queenscliff or Point Lonsdale again? Ahh decisions, decisions. Maybe back to Kelp in Point Lonsdale. Dinner there last night was delicious. Eye fillet steak and chocolate ambrosia to die for!Image
