I was out with the Spences one afternoon and turned to Rose to ask if she had spotted any whales and literally halfway through my sentence I had to stop and say "there's one!" and we all enjoyed some spoutings and splashings etc, which was the first time for me this year. Amazingly the next day when everyone was over for dinner the exact same sort of thing happened with me saying to the kids "I wonder if we can spot a ...there one is!" And it was all on again! Those humpbacks sure know how to make an entry!
As we chatted in the twilight, the water showed signs of action just beneath the surface. We watched a shovelnosed ray gliding up and down the beach, then we saw a few shark fins really close to the shore...the sharks were hunting fish right behind where we were standing to get a few shots of the sunset. Emma saw a whole school of fish jump out of the water to avoid being dinner, and she felt rather thankful that she hadn't become anyone's dinner during her last snorkel 10 minutes earlier!
