Monday 1 July 2019. A number of times now the Handels have visited the Swan Bay-Edwards Point Wildlife Reserve, a lovely, quiet place that occupies a spit of land immediately south of St Leonards on the Bellarine Peninsula. A walking track through the scrubby coastal woodland, saltmarsh plants and spiny grasses (careful!) takes visitors to a rotunda halfway down the spit. We usually spend time at the rotunda marvelling at the abundant birdlife. On one occasion we watched a vast flock of pelicans flying overhead, an extraordinary sight. Then we return the same way or via the beach, an adventure if the tide is in. The walk is around 3 kilometres.
