Summer Holiday - Part Two

New here?  Check out the other part of the Summer Holiday!  Part One


Just another day in paradise Holidayville!

Today we went on a three hour cruise... A three hour cruise.... Actually it was 3.5 hours but there's no song about that. Chyken was sad there was no movie star, or a millionaire offering to share his money, but it was super fun just the same!

This is the boat.

Thunderbirds are GO!

We set off on the Gippsland Lakes...

To the right of the octopus is our motel.  It's not flash, but it does the job.  We have a room on the top floor.  There are spare octopus legs on top of the other roof.  The octopus building contains a shell museum.  We might check that out tomorrow.

We found Mr Percival and his lovely wife.

Apparently it has been a bumper swan breeding season, there are what seem like billions around.

These are shags.  Not on rocks, but all lined up neatly.

It was very, very, very windy on the boat and in parts very bumpy.  Probably should have taken a jacket really.

Despite the wind, the sky was glorious, and it was quite lovely and warm when the sun came out.

The mountains in the distance are part of the Great Dividing Range.  We're gonna go for a drive up there at some stage.

I hadn't seen Heart ice creams in a very long time!  Just as good as I remember, before the world got all fancy with Magnum and Heaven ice creams.

 This is a fishing boat.  They catch the fish and then use this big grater to prepare them for fish fingers.

The ones that are too ugly to be used for fish fingers get to go back in the water, isn't that nice?  They get to go on the slide there on the left back into the ocean!  Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Went for a walk after a nommy dinner at the local RSL.  Saw many boats!

A beautiful sunset to end the day.  I wonder what is in store for us tomorrow?


  1. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but amazing pictures like that are surely worth more! It looks like you had a great holiday. :)

    1. We did, oh we did! Back to reality now though.

  2. Ooh hearts ice reams! Haven't seem them in donkeys years! They were always my dads favorites.

    Looks like you are having a fabulous time. I'm slightly jealous its not me :)

    1. Thanks Jess! We had a wonderful time. :-)

  3. Your Heart pic caught my eye and my taste buds, which started salivating! Didn't they used to make strawberry ones too? Its so heard to find strawberry choc covered ice creams now, not that I really should eating too many of them. Your holiday sounds and looks lovely.

    1. I had forgotten ALL about the strawberry ones! Wonder if they are re-making them too?
