First whales for the season

Very blurry photos as I forgot to take my camera and these are from Johns phone. He missed the best bits, flukes and tails but if you double click on the photos you may get some idea. Others were obviously aware of them as we went to do one of our usual walks along the cliffs near Petrels and suddenly John said, there is a whale out there. There were two as we saw two blows in quick succession and far more flukes etc than I have ever seen before. The whales were also a lot closer in than when they are over near Pt Elliot.So a bit of excitement to brighten a very dull and overcast day.

How beautiful. I've never seen whales swimming free before. Lucky you.

How exciting to live where there are whales.

How fun this must have been. Most of us will never see a free-swimming whale.

Hi P - must be a great thing to get a sighting of the whales - not something done from a mountain top. B
