I found myself in the southern part of Melbourne this afternoon, and I thought “…screw this. I’m going to go to the beach and find the penguins”.
There’s a small colony of Little Blue Penguins that lives in the rocks of the breakwater in St. Kilda. They’re tiny! The heaviest they get is about 200 grams.
The best time to see them is early morning/late evening, when the day is cool.
It wasn’t all penguins though. It was so wonderful to just be able to sit on the rocks and watch sea birds dive.
Now I’m that kind of sun-baked exhausted that really only comes from a day at the beach.
I love this city.
