The Humpback

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Dear Olive,
During our Winter months, the magnificent, awe-inspiring humpback whale makes its annual migration from Antarctica up to warmer waters in North Queensland. We are incredibly fortunate because not only do we live around the corner from the route the Whales take, but living with us, is Sydneys Premier Whale Spotter*, Shane. On Monday, in that time between afternoon and preparing dinner, we took a walk to see if we could spot any Whales. We didn't. But we did see some pretty amazing post-rain, dusk-time light.










* This is a self-appointed title, and one I must admit to having reservations about after the 'is it a seal, no its a piece of seaweed' affair.

I can't believe you just "took a walk" there. I do love my Melbourne, but that spot you've got there is pretty incredible. Fingers crossed for whale spotting soon... (and the seal/seaweed comment made me chuckle) xx joanna

Love whale spotting. We had our wedding reception at Clovelly bowling club and watched whales breeching up the coast all afternoon.
Maybe the perfect birthday gift for Sydney's Premier Whale Spotter is a pair of binoculars?

oh i do love whale spotting, it is gentle, delightful and the most perfect practice of sitting or standing, still (albeit often with a beating heart and active eyes). Happy Whale watching season to you, we will be starting this week and hoping that it extends as long as it did last year. xxx
