So we had to move out of our apartment today but there was a delay between us leaving and our new apartment being ready, so we used our Christmas money (thanks Mum and Kev), hired a car and drove down to Philip Island.
We managed to get a right bargain of a deal on Groupon for an overnight stay at the Ramada resort. We had a one bedroom cottage for the night, featuring a full kitchen and outdoor deck. The resort has tennis courts, outdoor swimming pool and a gym. So we spend a few hours relaxing before heading to the Penguin Parade.
Each night at sunset Little Penguins returning ashore after a day’s fishing. As the sun fades in the sky, Little Penguins waddle up the beach to the safety of their homes in the sand dunes. We watched them from a tiered viewing area on the beach. Unfortunately we were not able to take any pictures because this might scare the penguins so I have pinched some of the official website so you can get an idea as to what we experienced.
Observation of The Day: Jules and I have acquired strange eating habits since moving to the other side of the world. For the last week dinner hasn’t been before 10-10.30pm.
Today’s Finds: There is a whole section in the supermarket dedicated to bug, insect, ant, spider killing and prevention etc… We stocked up.
Animal Watch: Little penguins of course.
