Today we had another tour day though this one didnt start till later in the afternoon and for once we managed to get ourselves ready way before we needed to be! Our tour guide was extremely doppy and the others on the tour were a variety of ages. It was a bit of a rubbish day weather wise so before the tour arrived we had to go back to our dorm twice to put more clothing on! Of course i had my usual nap on the tour bus. Our first stopwas at a wineary - no where near as smart and not as nice wine as the one Vick had taken us to in Adelaide. Next was the snimal centre where we had been looking forward to getting to cuddle a wombat, but that wasnt possible because the wombat was asleep (wake it up i say!!) so another disappointment (we werent thinking great things about this tour by now)But we did get to hand feed wallabies and kangaroos which was really good, and quite a few of them had joeys in their pounches (extremely cute!) We also got to have an extremely cheesy photo with a koala, but we opted not to buy it, as we had got some photos of koalas sleeping outide so no where near as cheesy! We were dropped off at Woolami beach for 20mins but it was soo bitterly cold that it wasnt much fun (though very nice to watch the waves crashing against the outcrops of rocks.) Finally we had come to the point of the tour - Philip Island and the little penguins - we opted to pay more so we could sit closer to where the penguins walk up and managed to sit 3 rows from the front. It was freezing by this point!! Waiting for them to come up you could feel the anticipation in the air - i pointed out some tiny little white things at the rocks/sea edge, not quite knowing if they were penguins, then about 50 appeared and started to waddle over the rocks towards the small beach infront of us. I was amazed at first because we had been told they were small (worlds smallest) but i was still shocked as they were tiny - 33cm tall! They seemed to work in a system a group of aroung 50 would come out of the water - stop a while then move to a group of rocks, then make a dash across the sand towars where we were sitting. As each group moved forward another would follow. In total we must of seen hundreds. I was amazing to see them as close up as they were, and just right infront of the viewing plateform they stopped to prune themselves - so unbelievably cute! They would also create a little traffic jam with taking too long to prune themselves - not at any point did they even seem to notice humans were above them, or care. The noice they make is so funny too - chatting away to each other, and as we were walking along the broadwalk we saw two having a mini arguement and shouting quite loudly at each other. Definately an amazing experience and one i wont forget for a long time! So even though the day time part of the tour wasnt the best, the evening was well worth it!
