Friday, Saturday days 204,205 - Victor Harbour

Tassie and I hopped on the horse-drawn tram across to Granite Island while Daddy and Angus strolled behind. The weather was cold, gray and dreary to start off with.

Happily the clouds started to break and the sun appeared.

Tassie was delighted to discover some cockle shells, being the collector she is.

This is the little kiosk we went to for hot drinks and milkshake. It's been there in one form or another for many years. I have an old photo which I'll upload soon.

Oh the quiet, when Tassie has milkshake!

The seagulls were everywhere. A catchphrase Tassie started was "Mike Mike Mike" (as in Mine! Mine! Mine! from Finding Nemo) whenever she saw seagulls.

We didn't see any penguins other than these in the shop.

Interesting rock formations.

We decided to head off in the other direction and up the big hill to admire the view. Tassie always prefers to run off in the opposite direction.

There goes the little tram around the corner.

These are the little penguins that greet you at the foot of the hill.

I loved the golden wattle all the way up on our walk. Ian remembers it well from his childhood.

A beautiful view.

We were all a bit tired at the top.

Back across to Victor Harbour we had to get a closer look at the iconic whale tail fountain.

When Angie was let out to explore, he crawled directly into the water!

One of Klaus's hotdogs.

A handy shop window for our portrait!
