The penguin parade

Last night during torrential rain we trotted off to see the penguins of Philip Island come home after a long day in the ocean. 
You could not take photos so I downloaded the free app and used theirs to Show you  this is the viewing area and we got special tickets so er had front row seats
The penguins come in just after dark and will always come to the exact same spot on the beach. 
They come in groups and make a lot of noise. Some of the penguins are over ten years old and all off them have no interest or fear of us. But they so like to sit and look while we ohhh. And ahhh over them.
Here is a close up. You can't tell but they are a silvery blue colour and are the smallest penguins in the world. New Zealand have them as well 
So here is a world class attraction less than an hour from my home and this is only the third time I've seen them. Once as a kid, once with my kids and last night 
I will definitely come again. I loved it even though the weather was terrible. We all rugged up and looked like we were going to th South Pole we had a ball 
See ya
