Geelong Waterfront

We had lunch at the Wharf Shed Cafe at Geelong, down on Corio Bay.   The atmosphere here is pretty relaxed, the service is efficient and the food is very acceptable (Sue loved the mussels).  The prices aren't exactly a bargain, but that comes with the location, I suppose. 

It's interesting to take a walk along the waterfront area.  In particular, there are lots of "Baywalk Bollards" around - I see from the internet  that there are over 100 of these, and that they chronicle characters from the city's past and present, including dapper young ladies in neck-to-knee bathing costumes, 1930s lifesavers, 
a Geelong footballer, jaunty sailors, fishermen and a town band.
