EASTER MONDAY WHALES AND DOLPHINS
Went for a hike on Easter monday to blow away the cobwebs from the previous day when it had rained almost all day.
I was up near Shirly Heights looking out over Willoughby Bay when I spotted some spouts in the distance. After watching the area for a while I was rewarded with more spouts and then the classic whale tail of a sounding whale. I did not have my good telephoto camera with me so no photos that show anything clearly I am afraid. I also saw a small pod of dolphins in the same area as the whales, maybe there was some kind of food out there.
I walked back down a different path and got good views over English and Falmouth harbours.
I was thirsty when I got back so my evening sundowner tasted better than ever.
