Would you believe me if I told you this is EXACTLY what the sky looked like in Philip Island?
.
Pulling this one from deeeeeeep within the archives, because the colours caught my eye. Fiery, and yet so peaceable. And then I realised I never actually wrote a post about my journey to Philip Island when I was in Melbourne. Here’s why - when you go to Philip Island, you’re told you’ll see hundreds of penguins 🐧 making their way back home from a hard day’s work. That you’ll see them waddling cutely over the sand and make their way back from right next to you! It’s incredible, isn’t it? And it WAS pretty incredible to see real, live penguins scurrying around (SO cute omg)! But here’s what they don’t tell you - DO NOT go on a full moon night 😂 Penguins don’t like the light, they actually prefer to make their way back in utter darkness. And on a night like that, they’d rather stay in the sea where they’re much happier and feel far safer.
.
I wouldn’t say it was a complete waste that I didn’t see a hundred penguins. I did see a few, maybe around ten, and that was alright, although it did bum me out a bit. It isn’t something that can be helped though. But what I DID see was a sky as brilliant as this, a perfect image of the full moon shining over the sea on the other side, and something I never thought I’d lay my eyes on unless I made it to Antarctica some day. That’s not too bad, I guess 😊

Ever felt like you didn’t get what you signed up for while traveling? Where?
