Weekly Photo Challenge-Tour-Guide

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Tour Guide

~~~~~

I commenced taking photos in and around

Geelong when I commenced blogging.

I enjoy having a quiet moment at the Eastern Beach…

particularly in the winter.

This shot is near where our camera club meets.

 Geelong’s now completed library.

 

A Government building known locally as the

Upside Down building.

Sounds like a government doesn’t it?

 

Fairly certain that, or at least part of

this building is a suburban library.

 

Alongside the new there are also

old buildings such as the post office.

Our Floating Christmas Tree causes controversy

each year (cost of running it) and

draws thousands of visitors to view it.

Geelong’s main street runs right down

to the waterfront and this art work.

We didn’t  know what they were

and dubbed them shark’s teeth.

Only last year I used this term only

to be told they represent yachts on the bay.

A drive up Moorabool Street (main street)

will provide this view of Kardinia Park’s

light towers at Geelong’s Football ground.

Eastern Beach

Entrance to Cunningham Pier.

Geelong’s Carousel in fog

Geelong Ferris Wheel.

 

Corio Bay also provides some… 

glorious sunrises, and…

sunsets.

If you don’t want to do anything else

there are always ‘starving’ seagulls around.

 

This side of the Bay is  my favourite.

With Cunningham Pier Restaurant

as a backdrop to the constantly moving boats,

the scene is always changing

as winds and tide see fit.

and when the sun drops below the horizon…

everything changes.

Make sure Geelong is on your list

of places to visit if ever Victoria.

    • Yes it is rather pretty when one has time to ‘smell the roses.’ And having lived at least an half hour drive form the coast most of my life, I find Corio Bay fascinating…anytime of the year. Not to mention only being a 40 minute drive to many of the surf side holiday spots.

  3. Wonderful photos. I haven’t been to Geelong in years, we always skirt around it. And that library looks awesome. Might have to do a day tripper down there soon. Thanks for the tour.

    • Very easy to use the ring road these days, or back roads prior to the ring road, to skirt around Geelong. There is a ferry from Port Arlington to Melbourne these days. I hope to give it a try before the weather becomes too rough
