I have vowed for about 10 years that I should go on a Whale Watching tour . .this year I am going to do it. (Researching how and when right now). Often a mother and calf will interrupt the ferry service and breach or schloop well inside the heads . . .the rocky outcrops that enclose the harbour.
Crowds of people will accumulate to see the sights but thanks to work, it's impossible for me to get down to West Head in time to see their antics:
I saw a Humpback and calf breaching many years ago in the Bass Strait whilst ferrying across to Tassie but never up close. Today, my friend Kenton AKA Stan the Man, sent me this from Murawai beach on the North Island of New Zealand.
It was a joke (not the dead whale unfortunately, which is actually a Sperm Whale and not necessarily part of the current migration). He appeals to my silly side, then we share a particular sense of humour. So while eating your fush and chups and contemplating sux acluck dunner!
And you'll appreciate the humour in this:
He's still my gorgeous beach bum and soon-to-be Dishy Daddy!
