(also included complimentary champagne, port, chocolates and fluffy robes)
then looking out to the deck
Aboard step lightly, one and a half hours travel past the heads to sea, in search of whales me hearty shall we see a pod? They didn’t disappoint, up they rose majestic from the ocean floor. Fins and tales putting on a show two, three, magnificent beasts slapping the surface of water beneath their fins. There were “awws and oohs” as another was seen, take care you beauties of the deep look after your babies as I do mine. This ocean so wide, let you not be touched, nor harpoons thrust in your back. Run free, run wild.
The below pic is when she came close to our boat Truly a magnificent day, watching the whales show off for us. I have a video of 2 jumping, but I can’t get it to download, keep getting an error 😦 and we saw some seals on the way back. Then a quiet dinner in a cafe near the marina, surf and turf (steak and garlic prawns) glass of wine..so sublime. The below is moi outside the Marina in the morning before the whale watch, grumpy face as
#1 He didn’t say ‘ready?’ #2 Hadn’t swallowed a mouthful of coffee yet Today woke early, holidays..and we don’t sleep in. Ferry ride across to Tea Garden Island. Lunch in the local pub, grilled fish and walked around. On the way back saw 2 dolphins but they didn’t surface for long 😦 then drove to Anna Bay and saw magnificent sand dunes. Like the Sahara desert, the sand stretched as far as the eyes could see. We didn’t partake in the Camel rides as we had both experienced them before. That night a cafe at the Marina for tea, no pics was just a cafe. Yesterday we climbed Tomaree head look out, 2km straight up… My legs, my calves my glutes cried out in pain, but the view was pretty awesome. Below are pics from the top. Then to the bowling club for a late lunch, then back home. No pics – a bowling club’s a bowling club.
Had a spa to cure my aching bones and muscles. Quiet night in.
Today Mr. S went for an early round of golf – I tagged along. This is what you call a half selfie taken along side a serious golfer. On the Monday, I was picked up by a fellow blogger friend – ‘ Summerstommy’, Michael and we drove to his home. I even saw where the fairies lived too. 🙂 Michael showed me Morphet, then Mr S joined us and we went into Maitland to a lovely old pub for lunch. It was a lovely day – thank you my friend.
This was the cutest foal I spotted whilst we were seeing the sights, so naturally Mr. S had to stop for my photo. Our last day we drove around to a few different beaches, some nicer than others, we then went out for tea..all we seem to have done is eat…the joys of holidays is it not? This was the last night, as we sat on the foreshore, eating our hot fish and chips from the paper and occasionally me feeding the seagulls, we watched the sunset…awwwwwww. Hope you have enjoyed my holiday pics, sorry for the long post, but you have the 6 days in one hit now 🙂 x
PS I had the photos al lined up nicely with the writing, if they are everywhere after I post… I tried 🙂
