Woo-Hoo, The whales are back



If you are anywhere near the Southern coast of Africa in the next two months, don't forget that the whales are back! If you get a chance, take a drive along the coast and see if you can spot them. We went to Schoenmakerskop this afternoon, and had a wonderful time sitting on a bench, freezing our butts off and watching groups of them cruising past. We were delighted to catch a couple of them breaching. On the horizon there was an interesting ship with built in cranes travelling towards Capetown.

  2. Thanks for telling me what that ship was in the background. I couldn’t quite figure it out.

    I wonder what those whales are thinking splashing around like that.

  3. hehe Kris, probably something like "sheeesh this water is uncomfortably warm".... or since it is mating season, maybe " I wonder if this will impress her?"
