Hello, I am back. Back from where you may ask? well I have been on holiday and it has been a few weeks. I don't like to make a big song and dance when I am going away, and I am one of those people who doesn't like to "post" about being away for security reasons. So I am just happy to say we are back, we had a wonderful time, and are just about recovering from the jet lag and need another holiday lol. :) One of the main reasons for our trip was my friends wedding in Melbourne, we were at school together and have remained in contact for over 30 years. It was a wonderful day and then we had a little trip within a trip to Philip Island to see the Penguin Parade. I love penguins so this was a real thrill for me :)
At dusk the penguins start to come in from the sea in groups of about 20. They swim out of the sea and are shattered from there day at sea feeding. They waddle across the beach as fast as they can and then stop for a breather at the crest of a little sand dune which is very close to the seating for the "spectators", nd they head up the hill to their burrows.
