    Penguins on Phillip Island

    October 22, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Mir sind uf Phillip Island gfahre zum d Pinguin Parade luege.
    Zum glück hemmer na gnueg früe usegfunde, das me die Zwergpinguine nur zabig chan gseh!
    Mir sind bi Sunneuntergang tapfer dusse im biiswind ghöcklet und hend gwartet bis d Pingus zrugg a land chömed.
    Tatsächlich - ca. !!3'000!! Zwergpinguine sind i Grüppli usem Meer cho und hend de gfährlichi und steinigi Wäg zu ihrere chline Familie gmeisteret. Es isch herrlich gsii zum zueluege wie die zrugg gwatschlet, ghüpft und gstürchlet sind 😅 wie härzig!!😍😍

    D Föteli hemmer vom Internet gstibitzt wil mer keini selber hend derfe mache 😉

    __

    After arriving on Phillip Island we realised that on this ecxact weekend the Moto GP took place🙈.
    ... what a good time to come for seeing the Little Penguins ^^

    However... after parking on our site we realised that the "Penguin Parade" was about to start.
    So we drove back straight away to see them.
    Every day at sunset thousands of Little Penguins come ashore in big groups and waddle back to their burrows. Its probably the cutest thing ever!!😍😍

    This spectacle can be seen all year round and is definitly a must if your in the area!

    Ab zu de Seehünd :)

    October 19, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Mir sind früe am Morge uuf und ab is Tauchcenter... Det hemmer alles parat gmacht und denn ghofft, das d Bedinigige dusse ufem Meer gnueg guet sind zum zu de Seehünd gah...

    Und tatsächlich hets klappet - nach ca 45minute Bootsfahrt simmer binnere Kolonie vo Australian Fur Seals aacho!! Wuehee 😀

    Voller froid simmer i oisne dicke Neoprenazüg is Wasser ghüpft... Und hend s erst mal gmerkt wie chüel s Wasser isch... 14Grad... Herrlich 😅

    Wo ois di erste Seehünd bsuecht hend isch d chelti aber wider vergesse gsii 🐙 eifach wunderbar!!
    Ps: Si hend zimmlich übel nah Fish gschmöckt... Aber under Wasser schmöckt me zum glück nüt 😜

    Nah 45minute hemmer ois als zitterndi Iischlötzli wider a bord gschleppt und so guet wie mögli ufgwermt für de zweiti Tauchgang amene andere Ort. Det hemmer denn under Anderem na Wobbegong Haifischli und "widermal" en Grey Nurse Shark (Wo leider en Angelhaage mit abgrissener Schnur a sich gha het..
    🙈)
    Uund das lüchtige Seeschnäggli ufem Bild isch es Nudibranch 😉

    Was für en geniale Geburtstag!!!😁😁🎉
    __

    Early in the morning we went to the divecenter, prepared our gear and hoped that the ocean is calm enough to go to the seals...

    Luckily, the ocean was with us and after a 45min boat ride we came to a colony of australian fur seals!

    Full of anticipation we jumped in the water... And realized that it wasn't as warm as we expected... 14degrees... ⛄ wonderful 😅

    After we went down and got visited by the first seal, the cold was forgotten and we swam around with these curious, funny animals!!

    After 45min under water we dragged ourselves as shaking icecubes back on board 😅
    - and tried to warm ourselves up again for our next dive on another divespot. There we saw a few wobbegongs (the flat brown shark on the Picture), a grey nurse shark and some other stuff 😉
    That shiny blue snail on the picture is a nudibranch ;)

    What an awesome birthday!!!🎉😁😁
