The Pinnacles

We set off on another pinterest-inspired adventure today, this time to see the Pinnacles and Cape Woolamai.  Cape Woolamai is on Phillip Island, a place we have been to dozens of times now but every time we go we find another hidden gem to check out.

Phil set off on his bike and I was to meet him at the brewery for lunch.  Unfortunately he got a flat tire and so I met him on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere instead.  He consoled himself with a local pale ale while I excitedly tried out the sparkling taster paddle.

After our lunch we headed down to Cape Woolamai and started the hike along the beach.  There are some stairs that took us up on top of the cliff, and from there it was about 2k to the Pinnacles with some incredible views along the way.  The Pinnacles turned out to be a neat red rock formation surrounded by crashing waves of turquoise water.  Very pretty and worth the short hike.

The original plan was to end the day with the Melbourne Symphany Orchestra concert on Phillip Island and then the penguins of course.  Turns out I read the tickets wrong though and the concert was last night.  Oops!  I guess it's a good thing we've seen the penguins a few times before because after finding out I got the date wrong we were both ready to head home.  O well, I guess now we have something to look forward to next year.

And now for the requisite pictures -
