"Macca - travelling penguin" Personal Page by tiabunna
When we visited Macquarie Island, we found ourselves surrounded on the beaches by inquisitive Royal Penguins, like the ones in the photo. What we didn't realise is that, goodness knows how, it seems one of the chicks must have crept into our luggage.....
Because, somehow, we've found ourselves the custodian of a Royal Penguin who has an interest in travelling. He doesn't communicate well, just makes penguin noises which sound like "#$%*&@#!" and which we interpret to mean 'feed me some more krill'. From time to time he gets excited and leaps around too: but most of the time he's just THERE!. :-))
So we decided to let him stay with us and, because Royal Penguins come from Macquarie Island, his name just had to be Macca.
He'll be coming with us on our big trip, so it's likely he's be meeting several travel bears and other animals. For the moment, he's hanging around the house, annoying Clayton.
But it seems Macca is all set to go. He's now wearing his travelling scarf and a backpack. I hate to think what he may get up to...
