My son has a fascination with whales, and it has rubbed off on me. We have spent hours watching videos of various species of whales and their antics, and I am still baffled at their intelligence. Did you know they communicate to each other in a group to coordinate catching their feed? Ginormous oceanic hunters. Love it.
We went to Augusta a few months ago to go on a whale tour however the weather was atrocious. We were bunkered in (not that we minded) with tours cancelled for days. We also didn’t mind that we had to reschedule it, so now the whales have migrated to Dunsborough we had a reason to go on another road trip. We are partial to stopping to say hello to cows along the way, as you can tell.
Do you remember The Sexy Beast I won from Ford for a year as part of Kidspot’s Voices of 2013? Well The Sexy Beast is the ultimate road trip buddy, and once again didn’t disappoint. I have some exciting news about another generous gesture by Ford that has resulted in me having my hands on another fabulous Ford vehicle, but more on that later.
Here are some photos from our trip to Dunsborough. If you have kids that love sea creatures (or you do) I highly recommend you get yourselves onto Naturaliste Charter’s tour. It is sublime being out there in the Geographe Bay just relaxing on a boat watching those majestic creatures play around. Now the kid wants to swim with whales…and I might too.
Oh and that guy on the boat is skipper Mal, the funniest guy out there. He had everyone chuckling with this commentary. And check out the 11111 odometer on The Sexy Beast, yes we stopped and made a wish.
