Day 424: The Fleurieu Peninsula

Having rented a car, we set off for a beach day on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

1st stop: Victor Harbour where we walked out on this long causeway to a little island full of granite boulders and penguin burrows.  Sometimes, the causeway has a horse drawn train running on it.

2nd stop: a long, long beach on the southern side of the peninsula.  Nothing but sand, waves, and dead birds (oh, and some living ones too)

3rd stop: the beach on the western side of the peninsula, at a place imaginatively named Second Valley, turned out to be the most interesting, with hills, rocks and lots of interesting sea life.

This is Antonia's amazing sponge collection from the eastern beach:
