Warm Holidays

We have just had some wonderful days in Hervey Bay. Kerry and I went whale watching while the boys did some walking. If you ever have the chance to go whale watching in Hervey Bay do not hesitate. We went out with Tasman Ventures and I highly recommend them. 
It is an amazing experience when the boat turns off its motors and 6 whales come to have a look at you. 
They swim around and under the boat, they are very inquisitive.

This photo gives you some idea how close the whale come to the boat.
One of the crew members spends his summers on the Sea Shepard fighting the Japanese Whale vessels in the Antarctic. If I was young and had no commitments it is something I would consider.

Whale watching

The whale have the most amazing barnacles growing on them, which then have some funny looking sea creature attached to them.

I've got one of those pink succulents growing in a pot at home, you can have a cutting if you want it is huge so it will grow in Adelaide (with absolutely no care whatsoever)
