Visit to tile Seal Ilocks By Our Special Reporter. The day selected by the Earl and Countess of Stradbroke for a visit to the Seal Rocks, the show place of Phillip Island, was veritably one out of the box. The sky was almost cloudless and the sea, an azure blue, was barely ruffled by the light west erly breeze, whilst across the. water, the hills, which forni the backbone of the Mornington Pen insula, , stood out particularly clear, as did also the long stretch of sandy beach on the other shore of the Bay. It was at first thought that, perhaps, the s.s Genista, on her return from Stony Point, might make the trip and 'Dad' Kennon, to whom the Seal Rocks are so well known, had consented to act as pilot, he, having in his young days, lived for six weeks on them -capturing seals for oil, lohg before there was any idea of protecting them, that future generations might have the pleasure :of beholding. this; aquarium, of nature.. -For. some reason the:s s "Genista" did not make the trip an...
