    ... Easter holidays. Well, quiet until the evening when we went to watch the Fairy Penguins come ashore just after sunset. As usual, we were desperately early and so had some time to ourselves walking along the boardwalks along the shoreline above the burrows where the penguins would be returning to later in the evening. Then, the hordes of Japanese arrived - and there we sat on benches facing the sea waiting ...

    ... she wouldn't have minded. Marlo is a place I won't forget in a rush! I feel a lot of other stuff happened today, but it's hard to write it all down!

We followed some of them back to their little houses and they really couldn't care less that we were all watching they just continued waddling along to their address. It was like the penguin highway, they would all walk in a line and then take off in different directions when it got to their junction:) so funny and sweet to ...

    We left Seymour just after 9 am and had a pretty easy drive back down the Hume Highway. As we got closer to Melbourne we could see lots of cloud on the horizon. Typical Melbourne! There was a huge mass of grey cloud hovering over the city. We arrived home to similar weather as when we left. Luckily we had nearly 3 months of warm weather. We arrived home just after 11am. So it was quite a short trip. We managed ...
