      Southern Right Whales

We were here in December and truly thought that we had missed the whales, which was a crying shame because at that time I had never seen a whale before.

Anyway, at one of the small roundabouts in the park, I see a sign that says whale spotting, so we take that turning, park up, and walk up to the look out.
Would you believe it, there are another couple up there, and all of a sudden they shout that they have spotted a whale, they too were totally shocked!

We were high up at this lookout, but I was so excited and couldnt believe my eyes!
My piccies here do not do these whales justice at all, my camera at that time was basic and didn't have a good zoom - but I saw them with my own eyes which was the main thing.
