Alec and I flew down on Friday night for a long weekend in old Melbourne-town.

We stayed with some friends of his and their kids in Ferntree Gully, in the Dandenong Ranges.

Lookout – that’s Melbourne waaaay in the distance.


Pretty sculpture in the park.


We stopped at Pie In The Sky for lunch.


Spinach, feta and wild rice pie.

On Phillip Island.

Nobbies.



Watching sunset and waiting for the penguins to show up at Port Phillip Bay.

Penguins! We couldn’t take photos so this is from the wonderful internet. The penguins were awesome – so cute and making the funniest sounds. It was amazing to see them in the wild.
