School Holidays

The weather has been glorious today.   I’ve got my godson with me for a week over the school holidays.   A big event for all of us!   We walked and scootered from Elwood to St Kilda market and back, then went for a drive to the airport, dropped his mum at the train station and then went to see the penguins at the St Kilda pier.   It all culminated in sudden tears while he was reading a book.   Over tired me thinks – hopefully.

We took jackets with us thinking it would be cool at the end of the pier but it was just beautiful.   The penguins were good, lots of them to see. They are so fast in the water.  Camera flashes are banned, rightly so, which means no good photos of them as they won’t stay still for long enough for me to get a good shot.
