LIghthouse PointLonsdale

Lunch stop

Verne's favorite MUSSELS

Today Peter and Ali showed us around their “neighborhood”. Went to Port Phillip, Point Lonsdale, Morningston Peninsula National Park and Queenscliff. At Point Lonsdale we viewed The Rip the narrowest point from the bay to the ocean. We watched a ship being escorted out of the bay. Also located here is, according to Peter, the largest foghorn in the southern hemisphere. People will just come and watch the boats come in and out of the bay. We had lunch at an old hotel in Queenscliff and visited the harbour and marina area. Our final stop was at the wharf where Peter purchased fresh mussels. Ali cooked them for dinner. Verne said they were delicious and even better than the Green Lips he had in NZ. Tonight is our last night at Peter and Ali’s. WE have had such great fun. It will be sad to say goodbye tomorrow.

We will be leaving with clean clothes and suitcases repacked. (Ali said I must pack away my warm clothing, I will not need them until Sydney). After considering all the options of what to do with our large suitcase, it would have cost at least $700 to ship it home, the plan is to have it checked as far as Sydney, Verne will claim it from baggage at the airport and put it in a Taxi to the hotel to be stored until we arrive on the 16th.
