A perfect day!
Sunday 6th July dawned to another stunningly beautiful winters day. Calm, warm, blue skies, a delight. Not sure how the team do it but I’m definitely not going to argue with the magic. Its become my favourite whale event of the year.
The Humpbacks are often kilometres out to sea as they migrate past Sydney but here at Norah Head they are very close to the coast.
It was announced during the ‘Welcome to Country’ that a beloved indigenous elder had recently passed away and they were shaw she would be with us in spirit today.
Ten minutes later a rare Southern Right Whale turned up in the bay below the lighthouse and stayed all day! WOW
…then a large pod of dolphins came to play.
So the stage was set, dolphins playing in the surf, a Southern Right playing in the bay and a constant parade of Humpback passing by, oh and a whole bunch of spellbound humans dancing and celebrating the whales next to the lighthouse.
A simply fantastic and soul restoring day!
