Popeye's Village

The houses in which Popeye and his friends live look like candy-colored icing. The small harbor is cute, unfortunately too small for our Odin, so we have to stay out of it.
Before anyone thinks what we smoke here on board: the solution to the riddle is very simple. Years ago, the Hollywood flick Popeye starring Robin Williams was filmed here in Anchor Bay and the sets are still standing!
Unfortunately, as already mentioned, the harbor was too small, so we drove further to Golden Bay.
And indeed, the sandstone formations seem to glow golden in the setting sun. Elsewhere, the rock has such interesting shapes that Hollywood could shoot an alien film here without much effort.
