The people working on the roof give a good idea of the scale of the stadium

It is a beautiful day and the Bay and the start of the holiday season. Pollock Beach was quieter than the other beaches today, with no wind and clear skies. Out in the ocean too far away to photograph, were two hump backed whales making their way acroos the Bay and far in the distance was a school of about 2000 dolphins in a feeding frenzy.
For some beautiful photos of whales, dolphins and other animals in the Bay visit the Raggy Charters website.

Yesterday, as I often do when I am wandering around the house, I looked up to check the view through the front window, and there wasn't one! I checked the side window to see if a mist was coming in but it was bright and clear... so I realised I was looking at a fire in the valley.
Luckily the fire department were already there....

You can spend your whole life in Africa and not see one of these in the wild. Caracals are shy elusive nocturnal creatures, and have been made even more so because they have been hunted by farmers to the point where it is very rare to see one. This one posed obligingly at the side of the road, obviously reluctant to give up its warm sunny spot in the soft sand .... we were over the moon, and it really made up for the fact that the lions again eluded us. Anyway it gives us a good reason to go back soon!
