Pirates raid the Bellarine in Treasure Hunt!
On 2 January, shoppers at the Curlewis shopping centre were
surprised to see a group of pirates approaching them!
Suddenly ... pirates at Curlewis!
The pirates were launching a Treasure Hunt that runs until
19 February in selected businesses in Curlewis, Drysdale and Portarlington as
part of the 2017 Festival of Glass.
After visiting Curlewis and Drysdale, the pirates’ next stop
was Portarlington, where a major cycling event put a spoke in the treasure hunters' wheel.
Brigands among the bromides!
In Portarlington, the pirates visited Montana's and Wish Pond, before ending their visit with a hearty lunch (or is that "A lunch, me hearties"?!) at Portarlington's Postscript Cafe.

During the Treasure Hunt, each participating business will
display a commissioned piece of glass art; then all the pieces become prizes in
the Treasure Hunt draw at the Festival of Glass Expo on Sunday 19 February at
Drysdale’s Christian College.
