Fairies, Hearts, and Crests on Penguin Island

Heading out to Penguin Island As much as Emmett wanted to snorkel Rottnest Island, I wanted to kayak out to Penguin Island, part of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park and home to the Fairy Penguin and some stunning rock formations. I got my wish as we made our way down to Margaret River where we took a  kayak tour with Rivergods out of a little town called Rockingham.

And if you're anything like me, then you haven't gotten enough of the Fairy Penguins...so here are a couple of videos of them. Sit back and enjoy...maybe even as much as I did when I was there in person (or in penguin!).
