Today we took a tour out of Melbourne to Philip Island and Churchill Island.  We saw Wallabies, kangaroos, koalas and emus.  Also saw local sheep shearing on a working farm.  Enjoyed seeing boomerang throwing and trying it out as well.  At the end of the day, we watched the Penguin Parade.  These penguins are called Little Penguins and are only 12" high.  They come back at dusk from the sea after a day of eating and make their way back to their sand burrows to feed their young.  Loved all the animals and had lots of fun with the people on the tour.  Rain also stopped today and it was sunny and warm.
