I decided to spoil the kids, so I took them for an impromptu picnic near Williamstown yacht club. We drove around until we spotted a fish and chips shop. It is a lovely little place called Hobsons Bay Fish and Chips. I asked for 2 fish and chips. When they realised we wanted to share, they adjusted the servings and the price, so for $5, we got a huge amount of chips. The kids loved the wrapped fish and chips. We found a little table and benches on the quay and had lunch watching the yachts, seagulls and the city.
Afterwards the kids went exploring on the rocks. They found a little starfish stuck in a small rock pool, left behind by the tide.
On the way out, I saw the little ladybird. Not what I was expecting on the beach! It was sitting on this green bed of algae.
We had a ton of fun, but got home quite tired. Sometimes I feel it will take a week to recover from one outing!
(As you can see, it was a really windy day.)
