Photos from Geelong Waterfront
While Peceli played 18 holes of golf at Barwon Valley (and won because the excellent players were very confused by the coating of sand on the 'greens') I took a bus to town and walked around the Waterfront. Today was sunny and a beautiful autumn day, not like the bleak weather of the past week. I took several photos of the North sculptures, giant buoys, palm trees, carousel, and bollards, then ran out of camera card space, so I did some pencil sketches. Tourists were about and school groups and while I drew one lady bollard holding seashells, somebody was taking pictures of me as I sketched! I hope they got the best side, but I doubt it! A bollard is a large post made of wood used in piers and around waterfronts and Jan Mitchell (who died last year) made hundreds of beautiful sculptures of Geelong's history. Now there is a Bollards Walk of them all. Her bollards project started with school children many years ago down at Barwon Heads and the original bollards there were of soldiers.
