Easter 2006 Long weekend

Friday, 14 April 2006 | link | tag | / Trips / Australia / Queensland / Hervey Bay
Bud and I drove up to Mum and Dads for the Easter Long weekend. We didn't really do all that much, just relaxed.

Below are some of the photo's of the birds that come in each night as it gets dark. The next door neighbour feeds them, and they come in plentitude.

Whale Watching, Hervey Bay

Sunday, 18 September 2005 | link | tag | / Trips / Australia / Queensland / Hervey Bay
Whale Watching on Hervey Bay, my third attempt, the previous two being seasickness, bad weather and no whales... I was apprehensive.

The weather was perfect, the sea calm and flat, the sun warm, but not hot, and the whales plentiful and playful. Well, NOW I know why they call it the whale watching capitol of the world :)

The boat had barely made it to Platypus Bay when a couple of whales were spotted. They were a pair of teenage (sub-adult) whales about 5 metres long. Very curious, they circled the boat, spy-hopped, flipped and rolled near us for about an hour.

Another tour boat drew nearer, and the whales headed off to see that boat, but came back pretty much immediately - we had the better groupies - a bunch of teenage girls screaming and yelling. Even when a shouting match between boats started up, we still won.

I suppose the whales must think we're all nuts.

What a way to start theday, breakfast at a beach side cafe, watching the dolphins play in the surf.

Some images of the storm and the Urangan Pier.
