With another clear sunny winter day on Flinders Island it was a good opportunity to head to the beach for a BBQ. All the Flinders Island Car Rentals team minus Mr. Ed were keen, even the three dogs Bella, Bob and Jet. Sawyers Bay¬†is only 10 mins drive from the depot and has three wood BBQ’s set up with picnic tables so you can just pick the one which suits the day. The BBQ at the northern end of the was perfect today catching the morning sun and slightly protected from the fresh south westerly. Justin built a small fire and we dined on lamb chops, new spuds and carrots it was a genuine Flinders Island lunch. While lunch was cooking Row, Mitchell and the dogs explored the beach and granite rocks around the bay, Jet was full of energy and ran into the sea for a swim, the other dogs had more sense, Bella was on the trail of a wombat or wallaby that must have been there earlier in the day and bob¬†retired in the sun by the fire. With sand and lots of shells to discover Mitchell wasn’t sure what to check out first. There is a vast view the Blue Rocks area and of Mt. Strzelecki from the bay, a good spot for photos but we forgot the camera.

While in Melbourne we visited the Melbourne Zoo. A great day out for Mitchell who got as much enjoyment out of seeing other children his size as he did out of the animals. We got see the new baby Elephant and lots of birds, even a wombat which reminded us of home. As we left the Zoo the Mr. Whippy van had just arrived Rowena just counldn’t resist indulging in some icecream.
