The wind was blowing, the sky was blue but that warm doona enticed us to stay in bed a little bit longer this morning, so after a bit of a later start we headed into the beaches to see if we could spot some more whales – this time with camera in hand!
We started at the ocean baths and walked around to Newcastle beach.
We grabbed a quick breaky and hot chocolate at a cafe that looks out over Newcastle Beach – Liquid Gold Cafe – check ’em out if you’re in town.
We saw a few puffs of whale breath far out in the ocean so we made our way back to the baths hoping a few might pop up closer to shore.
The wind was whipping the top off the waves.
Whilst the canoe pool was empty the waves were just lapping over the back due to their size and some were washing over the back of the main pool.
As we hadn’t seen any whales earlier in the day, we headed back again in the afternoon after my meeting and we did at least manage to spot these guys, but that was a close and as active as they got today, i think they definitely had the sleepy Sunday migration blues today.
The whales may not have been playing, but the surfers were out and trying not to get munched my the waves.
The wind hadn’t dropped and the waves were still being whipped about by the wind and it was too cold to stick around for sunset today.
