I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

The Bistro, The Shell Club
The Shell Club is similar to a hotel in some ways. You can purchase a drink at the bar, or walk in off the street and sit down and have a meal in the dining area or in the bar - you do need to sign in, or a member can sign you in as a guest. The Shell Club is more than that, though, as it is a bit more private.
The Shell Club was originally formed in 1952 by some workers from the Shell Refinery. The original Clubhouse was a Tin Shed. It was on the same site as the Shell Club is now. You can now dine in comfort in a large, airy building which caters for meals at lunch and dinner, weddings, and other functions.
The Club evolved over the years with the Shell Club now housing a Garden View Bistro, a Sportsbar and lots of entertainment on offer. From an original idea to cater for a small group of friends the Club has grown into a friendly club, with membership at $15.00 per year. The Shell Club is a great place for members and guests.
