Whale Tales

Patrick and I had the most beautiful weekend getaway, in Hermanus, with friends.  Having never seen whales before; I was super excited to have a break in a town known for it's whale wildlife, thanks to my awesome girl friend.

We arrived at about 16:30 on Friday evening, settled nicely into our accommodation and enjoyed a good 'ol braai. After a few rounds of drinks, a failed attempt at (Junior)Trivial Pursuit, toasted marshmallows over the fire and glow stick experiments in fire, we headed down to the lagoon's jetty for more play time.  Then bed.

On Saturday we took a drive into the town, ready for some whale spotting. We were very lucky with the weather which, contrary to the weather report, was amazingly warm, sunny and windless. We started off at "Gearing Point" and saw some splashes in the distance, but Mr Whale wasn't in the mood for a display.

We then took a bit of a walk around, through the market and along the cliff-top, when I spotted a sign that piqued my interest, saying Bientings Cave Sea World. Upon closer inspection, we discovered it was a restaurant on the cliffs (I will be sure to try it out next time), but then something else caught our eyes. Whales!!! One. Two? Three?! So amazing!

On our way back to the house we stopped at a little beach, and were fortunate enough to catch more whale sightings. Although a bit further from our sights than the last, these guys were really making a show of it.

Saturday night we had more yummy braaing, drinking, glowing, friend time. Very important scientific night sky observations, and even some light painting. :)

Sunday we woke up to miserable weather, which continued all the way back to Cape Town, but it was very welcome once we were snuggled up at home.

All in all, a weekend of beauty and happiness to remember. I feel blessed.

So, I've recently found out that one of my favourite artists is coming to SA in November! It really is something special, since I've loved her quirky, unconventional, beautiful music for many many years.
