We had a whole loads of shots before crossing over to Phillip Island for the Penguin Parade.. The pier.. The flowers and the bridge..

Lunch was really great Fish and Chips and I was so busy getting ready for the food I forgot to take photos of the food.. Haha… But the fish and chips was a really huge portion.. If you check out the photo of the family having picnic and enjoying their fish and chips, that was the portion I’m talking about.. Freaky… Smart part? You have to pay for the Tartar sauce. Who wouldn’t pay for it? What’s Fish and chips without the Tartar sauce?

We spent the evening before the penguin feeding Outback animals at the reserve.. Is that what it’s called? Can’t remember…

No kiss for me?

Penguin Parade was a beautiful sight, but one which one had to go down personally to check out.. Partly because photos are not allowed because it may frighten the penguins from returning to Phillip Island.. But its really cool… At a specific time, the whole pack of penguin simply return together in a huge pack and they slowly make their way to their little burrows.. Its really really cute.. Some of them mate.. But that’s beside the point..
