The Veronica chronicles: Phillip Island then on to Melbourne

This morning began in the town of Cowes on Phillip Island in an overcast fashion brightened only by a tasty bircher muesli garnished avec geranium flower for breakfast.

Today was all about Australian animals for TC. Albeit the walk around the Wildlife Park was a tad muddy, it was more than made up for by the variety of unique animals in the mix.  Here’s a taste.

Last stop before heading towards the big city was The Nobbies – the Southern Ocean in full swell with not a migrating whale in site.

We negotiated our way into Melbourne with little or no fuss and ended a good day with a great meal at Smith & Daughters in Fitzroy which may have included a glass (or two) of Tempranillo for one of our party.
