We have been back in Oz for a little over 1 month, an early priority was meeting our newest young Grandson, Ashton.
The King Parrots have a new chick that came around for a visit and a feed –
We had a week away down on the Mornington Peninsula, the weather was cool but fine so we were able to have to have a good look around. This is Cape Shank –
We stayed at a Timeshare Resort and a good friend Trish came to visit so we played some mini golf
We visited lots of attractions in the area. One was a nursery specialising in native plants and sculptures, this pelican a good example.
Trish took us for a ride on the Arthurs Seat Eagle gondola ride with fantastic views over Port Phillip Bay, on a hazy winters’ day.
It seems that some of the Star Wars folk have found the Peninsula a good place to live, although the Xfighter and R2D2 look a bit worse for wear.
We drove over to the Darnum Musical Village for a day out with our Probus Club, an amazing collection of antique musical instruments mostly in working order.
We had a good time down there, despite the cool weather.
Sunsets over the bay –
We watched a crew derig an old Couta boat at Sorrento. These are sailing boats that were used for fishing in the bay about 100 years ago, although they are mostly used for pleasure sailing these days.
The other side of the Peninsula faces Bass Strait which has some good surfing beaches. There was a good steady 5-6 ft swell running at nearly every beach that we saw, although not many surfers.
We arrived home to find yet another new addition. Oreo is Warren and Mae’s new dog, 3 months old and very cute.
July has been a time for Birthday parties for us, 6 of us Cancerians have celebrated in the winter weather and it has been fun.
It has also been cold
So we’re heading north for the rest of the winter to warm up a bit.
Please stayed tuned
