Destination Queenscliff for the Melbourne Cup long weekend

Alex and I are departing Melbourne and heading for Queenscliff this Melbourne Cup long weekend (that’s a public holiday long weekend thanks to a horse race).

Queenscliff is about 20 minute drive further on from Geelong (which I once read Geelong described as “a place you need to drive through to get to the Great Ocean Road”…ouch).  It wasn’t mentioned that Geelong also has a very fine AFL football team.

Having spent another long working week in the office staring at my cubicle walls, I am looking forward to heading away and getting a bit of sun and vitamin D (well the weather looks like it might be fine – about 21 ish degrees).  Also just looking forward to spending a bit of time near the water.

Alex has booked us into the Queenscliff Hotel which he promised me had some good reviews and is clean.  If there is one thing I need accommodation to be…it needs to be clean.  Seems we also have breakfast included and while Alex didn’t know what breakfast included, I am absolutely positive it will be lovely…hmmm.

So, the place looks good, weather looks like it is going to be good, I don’t have to drive (which is good) and Meow Meow (the cat) won’t starve with us being away for one night which is good.

Will let you know what we end up doing while in Queenscliff.[showmyads]
