|I wish I'd worn something warmer|
Today was our wedding anniversary (32 years) so we went whale watching. As you do. We had brunch down at Circular Quay and were serenaded by a street busker with an accordion. We could have been in France; the man with the didgeridoo was the other side of the quay. At midday we hopped onto the Whale Watching cruise boat. The sea was fairly choppy once we left Sydney Harbour but we had taken some Kwells beforehand and we just enjoyed bouncing along on top of the waves, it was like a big dipper ride. I just wished I had worn a woolly hat and thicker jumper.
We spent a couple of hours out on the ocean and were rewarded by the sight of several humpback whales. The first thing you spot is the plume of spray as they come to the surface. Then their massive bodies arch out of the water and they raise their distinctive tail before disappearing beneath the surface. This was the first time I had seen whales in the open sea so it was very exciting. By the middle of November they will all have migrated to the Antarctic for the summer.
