Norfolk Home Page

Today we decided to do some shopping. Well we could have if the shops were open, but being a Sunday the only thing open was the cafes. So we returned to the one we went to yesterday for some brunch. Gai had the usual toasted ham and cheese sandwich while I had a toasted ham, cheese and tomato sandwich. Very nice indeed.

Well as the shops were shut we thought that we would visit the museum. There are actually 3 museums on the island, each showing different things and telling about different parts of the history and colonisation of the island. It was now around 2.30PM and the museum closed at 3.00PM, so we decided to give it a miss as it would be a pretty rushed affair. So instead we did some more driving around the island. I think we have driven on about 75% of the sealed roads now.

Tea tonight was fish and chips. The fish was absolutely beautiful and way too many chips. The left over chips were fed to the birds and chickens.

Phillip Island used to
have rabbits & goats.

These animals nearly destroyed
all the vegetation here.

The historic buildings of Kingston are in the foreground and the far right is the Prisoners Barracks. Government House on the right is partially visible although it is surrounded by Norfolk Pines.
