Humpback Whales on their migration north, Gold Coast, Australia, July 2011   Leave a comment

On Monday, I had the day off  work and with my new camera in hand, I headed out whale watching aboard Sea World’s Whale Watching boat. I thought it would be a great opportunity to really test out how fast the camera works. Unfortunately it was one of those days, lots of whales but not one of them was doing anything to get excited about.

This was the most exciting it got, a young whale appearing to try and attract the attention of another whale as they later joined up.

I got off the boat 3 hours later feeling very flat but won’t give up yet. I have another Monday off before I go to Africa so I will try my luck again in about 10 days time.

If that fails, I am planning a trip to Hervey Bay where the whales go to rest on their long migration, after I return from Africa.

I am hoping to get there at the end of September.
