They just seemed to go forever. I had left the kids and Brian in the car and being wet I ran out and took photos and then got back in the car and we drove up a little further along and took more photos of these wonderful pieces of art sculpture. They certainly were eye catching and made what would otherwise be just another shoreline a whole lot better to look at.
Pity about the weather otherwise we would have spent a lot longer than we did. At one point I left Brian and the kids at the cute little park whilst I went exploring. I didn't get to take all the photos I wanted as the batteries in the camera ran out. when I got back to the kids and Brian they didn't seem to care it now was back to a light rain and were running about like it was a bright and sunny day. Apparently jazynthe had been digging in the gravel trying to find the rest of this serpant looking thing.
Now a bit more about these bollards. The Bollards were repainted by Jan Mitchel. She has painted them in bright colours to represent the human form some have historical significance others are more contempory. You may find one on it's own or there may be group or cluster of them. Each group has a rabbit featured. The rabbit is to represent the landing Point in Corio Bay of the first rabbits to reach the shore of Australia.
Geelong Football Club pity she died last year as there needs to be another Geelong Footy one for them winning the AFL grand final this year.
