Day 4 - Thursday, Phillip Island fairy penguins. It was a bit freezing in the rain, sitting on the wooden benches waiting for them to come out. A wave rolled in, then a black bunch tumbled around, then stood up. The wave receded, and voila, there around 10 of them standing together. They swam back, swam in, swam out, then eventually waddled up the sand to the nesting spots.
From the walkway, you could see these penguins quite close up. It's been done well so as not to interfere with them. I hope all these humans aren't having an impact on them. Very cute and amazing.
|Melbourne looks very old world European.|
Day 5, Friday - We got a tram along Chapel Street, walked around Prahran, had lunch at the markets - a shed like the one in Cagnes sur Mer. Another tram trip, a walk along Botanic Gardens, a skate park stop, Southbank then saw a movie!
|Sometimes we were a bit slow getting out of the house.|

On Saturday we packed up and left, heading up to Yackandandah. We stopped at a winery where the boys ran around, and we tasted wines, and got a couple of cases. Got to Lib and Hughs where they have a huge swing, a cubby house very high up and a mini hockey field. Cam, Row, Ben, Angus and Mollie the dog kept the boys entertained.
Sunday we played hockey, packed up, and drove drove all the way home, stopping at Vonnie's for dinner, and to meet up with Charlie's family once more.
Can't wait to do it all again!
