Stepping off the Manly Ferry at dusk, Sara was finally ready to unwind after a long day at the office. Having signed off from her last work-related call of the day, she was looking forward to relaxing at home with her partner and small daughter. But as she walked past the boardwalk by the wharf, she stopped to get a quick glance of her favourite friends – the Little Penguins.
