Andy arrived late last night so stayed up chatting.
Wilson decided the change of routine was not to his liking and got up at 5.30 so not the best start to a day for Sharon. Drove to Cowes. Pretty town and bay. The girls took time out to do a quick look around the shops whilst Moe entertained Wilson making balloon models. Moved on to Nobbies Point to try and see the seals on Seal Rocks. Could make out their shape but not that close. Good visitor centre though.
After grabbing some warm clothes and dropping off Andy and Wilson back at the house we went to experience the Penguin Parade. At dusk, hundreds of fairy penguins come ashore and waddle in groups to find their burrows and mating partners for the night. Amazing experience watching and hearing their calls. Got back for a nice roast dinner. Sharon and I popped down to the restaurant/bar for some fizz to lament our last night in Oz.
