Just picked up some shots I had on an old roll of film. Mid last year we went and stayed at Allenvale, our friend's holiday cottages down at Lorne.
A more idyllic place you couldn't find, and a great getaway for us over many years.
Our fourteen year old, Joey, took his first steps here.
Allenvale lies on the back of the hill Lorne fronts, and is 10 minutes from any number of top surf spots... Cathedral Rock, Weeds, George River, and on, and on. A fantastic place to sit in front of a fire, too.
Platypus and trout live in the river that runs past the cottages.
This cottage, called Kero, is nearly 100 years old, and in the 70's was home to Wayne Lynch, who needs no introduction if you know your surf history.
Can you imagine a nicer place to live?
The other shot is a shot taken around the same time, pretty average Bells, but lovely light.
