Postcard Friendship Friday - Phillip Island

Again, it seemed fitting this week to share a postcard that complements the A-Z Challenge; my selected theme for this month long posting is Australia. You can read the various posts via this tag line.

Phillip Island is in Victoria, and home to the incredibly cute Fairy Penguins. They grow to the approximate height of 33cms. These little ones spend all day swimming and then towards dusk they emerge from the waters and hunt. According to my early notebooks, I visited Phillip Island in July 1991, but in 1996 Phillip Island Nature Park was created. Do click the link - there is a short video of the area and a few of the little penguins.

I recall that day in 1991 where a whole group of us were instructed to not take photographs with flash as this hurts their small eyes, but we could photograph them. The sight was amazing as these small little things waddled up the beach from the sea.
