Phillip Island, Rough Seas, and Penguins
Today Alan and I rented a car to drive to Phillip Island, home of the little penguins. After finding a place to stay, we went to the end of the island to the Nobbies.

From this point you can see a few little islands and very violent seas. The wind was incredibly strong. After walking around the visitor’s center, we went to the parade of the penguins.

At dusk, the penguins come out the water in packs and waddle to their homes. They truly are little penguins at 14 inches high and 2 pounds. They make these loud screaming and cooing sounds as they make it to their homes. I have decided I need to take a penguin, koala bear, and kangaroo home with me. They were all so adorable. Tomorrow we head back to Melbourne for one more day and then leave for the Great Barrier Reef on Wednesday.
