Travel day! You wouldn’t guess it from the beach photos above but we left early and had to run to pick up the rental car. Drama with getting a taxi, my credit card in the taxi (we have multiple cards, but still), the damn Garmin and rain but I made it here by sticking to the left. Man, it’s weird driving with the steering wheel on the right. I think it would be easier if it was still on the left, it would be just like one way streets, but oh well. Made it here, I just drive like a 16 year old. Heh.
We made it after lunch to The Nobbies on the other side of the island. 1.5 kilometres offshore from The Nobbies are Seal Rocks, home to Australiaâ€™s largest Australian Fur Seal colony. Didn’t see any seals (didn’t look in the looking glasses, so many tourists), but we did see a few fairy penguins! They run up the beach after sunset and there’s a whole Penguin Parade thinger here which I’m not sure I want to do. You sit in bleachers and watch penguins run up the beach. Cute though.
There were a few in their cubby houses and this little guy under a boardwalk just hanging out avoiding tourists. Don’t blame them one bit. There was one stuck under a boardwalk and some tourists were hanging off with selfie sticks trying to get photos. I used the zoom like a normal person.
