The 12 Apostles and the Great Ocean Road
I left the next morning and headed west along the Great Ocean Road, an
amazing drive which is something like the Oregon Coast Highway. I'd
read a lot of literature claiming that the Great Ocean Road was the finest
ocean drive in the world and yes, it's a nice drive certainly, but nothing
tops the Oregon Coast Highway.
Anyway, the most scenic part of the Great Ocean Road is a section called
the "12 Apostles," with the Apostles being a series of sea stacks that dot
Itís a beautiful area and it was a glorious day, and I decided that the
Apostles alone were worth a visit to Victoria.

I've ever driven.

Actually, I only counted 11 of them.
