These are the somewhat random and often scattered thoughts of the Marr family members about almost anything - what we are currently doing on the web, recent outings (as distinct from being 'let out'), any interesting stoushes we have had or are trying to have with any one or thing that annoys us, things happening around us, etc. etc.

Thar she blows ......
Had a very pleasant Saturday arvo - drove to Lorne to meet Adrian & Chrissy for lunch.
On the way back we decided to go the Great Ocean Road route, even though it's a lot longer than returning via Colac. Between Apollo Bay & Marengo (the western end of Apollo Bay) we came upon a traffic jam (actually, the second for the trip - the local Copper was conducting random breath & licence checks just east of the town). Lots of cars parked on both sides of the road - figured it could only be one thing, so we pulled over too.
Sure enough, there were two whales gambolling just off-shore in the shallow water. Stopped and watched them for about ten minutes. Even though they were relatively close to shore, it was difficult to get close-up pictures of them. Did manage some, two of which are included in this story, but that was the closest we could get, even on maximum zoom.
