After a rainy day at home, it’s time to visit an Australian beach or two. Day 38 Wednesday 29th June 2011. The beaches are overwhelming, and come with wonderful birds, including pelicans. The splendiferous Spencers take us around with every expected excess of generosity and style. We lunch at a friendly Australian RSL, after waiting with field glasses to see the passing whales, on their way North from the Antarctic, from feeding to breeding.
