|Apollo Bay, Great Ocean Road, Victoria|
|Homemade Blackberry Jam from wild blackberries|
The beach and surf at Apollo Bay are stunningly beautiful. After breakfast this morning we walked along the beach, and paddled in the water which wasn't that cold given the overcast conditions, before driving up into the hinterland and exploring. This was our first day here without rain so we were making the most of it.
There we found a remarkable biodynamic cottage garden, called Otway Herbs, the owners of which send plants which they propagate to mostly cooler destinations along the East Coast including the Atherton Tablelands, Maleny, around Sydney etc. This is where I bought the Blackberry jam that his wife makes, and where the blackberries grow wild. The owner was a very interesting man to talk to and passionate about Landcare, biodynamic farming and the preservation of native species in his area, some of which are now facing extinction due to previous land clearing.
|What a great idea!|

Best wishes and I hope all is going well in your part of the world.
Keeping on travelling.
