Unfortunately, I didn't see any penguins.
I did see this large bird. $100 to anyone who can identify it.
So, if I didn't see penguins, what did I see? This:
The water is very calm since we are in a bay. No surfing here! However, one of the best surfing beaches in Australia is about an hour south of Melbourne, which we will be sure to check out. Also, I just made a new rule that anyone who visits us has to take a surfing lesson in the spirit of all things Australian, so prepare yourselves!
I'm now posted up in Bon Bons, a bakery right around the corner from our apartment, waiting for the keys to our place. I'm not quite sure what I will do once I get in...we have no furniture and Peter won't bring our luggage over until he's done with work around 9. I hear there is a Bed, Bath, and Beyond-like store somewhere around here that I may check out. We are going to need towels for showers tomorrow, at the very least!
My goal this weekend is to see a kangaroo! We might visit a wildlife sanctuary in the city, which is sort of cheating in my opinion, but still cool! It will have to do for now if we don't have time to rent a car and drive out of the city, though. Apparently kangaroos don't hop through the city or surrounding suburbs. Go figure. If we do get a chance to rent a car, we will definitely check out the Great Ocean Road that follows the coastline and is supposed to be beautiful! Alright, off to get the keys!
