Guest blog - Caroline's girlie adventure

Girlie adventure consisted of:

Fri 9th November
Healesville Animal Sanctary with Karen's lovely family: Mum, Dad, sister Linda and star of attractions 2 year old Hudson and taking second fiddle for the moment (asleep) very sweet new born Reegan. Saw no end of Ozzie animals including: kangaroos, wombats, snakes, goannas, echidnas, emus, lizards, platapi, dingoes etc. Back to Karen's family house to feed her horse, visit her active Granma (feeding the 5 thousand) and be cooked yummy roast by her Dad, with sister's family.

Cute Wombat and Terrapin at Healesville
Sat 10th November
Late start (Caroline unusually read too late the night before) and off on bike ride on old railway line (apparently Beeching wasn't the only one at it). Then to Karen's sister's ranch to check up on Hudson and eat some delicious home grown cow cooked on all Ozzie BBQ and looking at outstanding view. Then to visit Karen's mum and walk to historic village and Karen's Gran in a home and back to see Ally home safely at midnight having met up with half his uni entourage.

Shorts on display in the 1908 vintage shop - who said fashions didn't come around again!
Sun 11th November
Leisurely start, what with Ally's midnight arrival and previous night in car and off to Phillip Island to see the Little Penguins via Inverloch to swim in blue, but chilly water, closed maze (moo) and amazing interactive chocolate factory.

Hmmm - chocolate...
Honey we shrunk the kids...
Waiting for the penguins on the beach. Shortly afterwards we were reminded that no photography was allowed...
