Weekend Wanderings: Churchill Island at Phillip Island

This last week I spent a couple of days down on Phillip Island. An old friend of mine, Teresa, has a house down there and I went to spend a couple of days with her. On my last day she took me to Churchill Island. It is a farm, or was, but we didn’t go into the farm part. There is a great big walk around the island so we did that instead.

It was overcast, but you get the idea. We even saw some animals and Cape Barren geese. I love the geese. They seem to be everywhere on Phillip Island. They also have some crazy trees there, they are called Moonah trees. They were amazing.

If I get back, I will spend some time in the farm part. It is only about $12.50 to get in, so not expensive. We did have lunch in the cafe which was great.

The school holidays are coming to a close and school will be back in the next week or so. I have to say I like it when they go back, things don’t seem so mad. Also means summer is coming to an end, and I can’t wait. I’m not a summer person.

Here are some of the photos I took on Churchill Island.

  1. Love the horse and the trees have a dream like quality to them. So glad you are almost done with summer. I really get it now. I’ve been loving winter .

    • Thank you Nicci, I hope so, though we might still have another couple of months of hot weather, but hoping winter comes soon. I love winter too, it’s the best time of year.

  2. I love the Moonah trees. They are very striking. As always, lovely shots.

  3. very impressive to look at the weather.

  4. These are really beautiful :)!

  5. Lovely photos around Churchill Island. The clouds certainly gave a moody feel which seems to work with what you took photos of πŸ™‚ It looked pretty quiet from your photos, but then again, maybe the people and visitors were behind you, lol.

    “I have to say I like it when they go back, things don’t seem so mad.” I have to agree. Places seem much more crowded and queues longer this time of the year, not to mention noisier. Can be hard to get a clean shot when people are all round. Earlier today I went to the Australian Open tennis – last day, but still plenty of people around.

    • Thank you Mabel, overcast can be great sometimes. It was a bit, though many in the cafe. I think it was the start of the long weekend so people were still travelling there.

      I know, I will be glad when the holidays are over, makes it easier for me, I can go back to the beach again. YOu were brave going to the tennis, I haven’t been there for years.

Talk to me, it is too quiet.
