The Little Penguins

Last evening after a busy day with my Grandies and Daughter In Law doing magicians puzzles and mazes and bendy mirrors, nearly getting blown to Tasmania at Seals Rock, we fronted up to see the famous little Phillip Island Fairy Penguins as they known, come ashore to their burrows at sunset.
This is the only photo, it was used from Pixabay as you are prohibited from photographing them on their nightly pilgrimage.
They are soooo darn cute and over 3,300 came ashore.
Whilst we waited for sunset, we nearly froze to the bench seats.....
I have never ever been so cold!! I mean EVER! Even number 1 son looked like a bank robber lol!
But what an experience to see them waddle along side the viewing boardwalks to their burrows, sqwarking and calling as they went in groups of tens and twenties. Close enough to touch....which is also not permitted for their saftey and ours as they do bite! The Grandies just loved it as did the big people once they thawed out lol!
Mr R and my Son had a great day today at the big race.....our Logan boy rode really well and Mr R's Fav came second ( he is a Yamaha fan from way back) so all is well in boyland!
Even though I feel as if I  shall never again feel warm, Phillip Island is a beautiful place.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  4. I am so pleased you made it to the penguins. They are adorable. And, yes, it is cold!!! I think we have worn coats every time we have visited. But it is worth it. I think we have some warm weather coming for Tuesday. Good luck.

  7. When I visited Australia 3 or 4 years ago one of my main desires was to see the Fairy penguins. We travelled clear across the other side of Tasmania hoping to see them, only to find out it was the wrong time of year. You are so lucky, even if you are cold. :)
