There are many spectacular views of beaches and the ocean in and around Victor Harbor on the south coast of South Australia.
My friend Rod took us on a tour of some of the highlights on a recent visit to the popular seaside town.
These photos were taken on the south side of the prominent hill know as The Bluff.
We also enjoy taking our caravan there and staying for a weekend or a few days. On our most recent trip in March of this year, my friend and fellow writer Rod and his wife took us on a tour of the highlights. He drove us around in his 1928 Model A Ford which, in itself, was a highlight. The tour included a picnic cuppa on The Bluff, from where I took these photos.
On our recent short holiday in Victor Harbor we went to visit my friend and fellow writer Rod. On the Sunday afternoon he took us for a tour of Victor Harbor in his wonderful 1928 A Model Ford. We ended up at the picnic area half way up The Bluff, a prominent granite hill to the south west of the town. Here we had a wonderful picnic with magnificent views of the town and Encounter Bay.
NO – the white hair is NOT my hair. It was attached to the wonderfully appropriate hat Rod gave me to wear for the afternoon.
On our short holiday in Victor Harbor in March we were invited to visit my friend and fellow writer Rod and his good wife. Rod had promised me a tour of Victor Harbor in style – in his 1928 A Model Ford no less.
He dressed us up in a fancy hat – kept strategically at the front door for such occasions – and we were off, complete with picnic basket and thermos and the makings for afternoon tea.
It was a hoot waving royally to strangers as we chugged along in style.
I’ll post more photos in coming days.
Back in March this year we had a long weekend in Victor Harbor. This is an annual pilgrimage for us a a number of friends. Our wives go to attend a convention while the men do the cooking, cleaning and generally sitting around solving the world’s problems.
It’s a really relaxing weekend for all concerned.
Above is a photo of our caravan site, situated under some shady trees which were in flower and full of very noisy lorikeets. Our caravan is the one on the right – this one with the towels drying on the front. We were sitting around with friends discussing what friends discuss.
Below is a photo of Encounter Bay taken the next day.
