Whale Play

The humpback whales are migrating back south for the warm summer months and they're bringing their calfs along with them. On their way down south there have been several at play just here off our coast.

Usually we've been seeing them in the afternoon, but this morning there was a group of three that were right in close towards the peninsula. The two babies in particular were getting right in near the rocks. After a little bit of up and down feeding the mum (or, I'm asusming it's the mum as she was the only adult whale that I could see) got a bit concerned perhapse and started a great show of tail and fin slapping. The babies immediatled started replying in same (I imagine the classic "aww mooooom" whine) but then immediatly zipped off away from the coast once more.

Just when I get to thinking this place couldn't possibly get any more magical, I spend my breakfast on the porch, drinking my cup of tea, listening to the steady rain and bird song and watch humpbacks journey by.

Yeah, in so many ways this is my favorite place on Earth. It has a cure for all that ails me! (well, almost :D)

You my dear, have an open invitation. I would love to invite you and yours up for a bit of a holiday whenever you get some free time.

Of course! I'd love to share this place with all of my loved ones (I've been VERY busy encouraging some State-side friends to come and visit *grins*)

I'll have to be in touch with you shortly about visiting, my year in Sydney is a month and a bit short of coming to an end. Depending if I get a job in Sydney or not I might be returning here to Coffs on a more permanent nature. Either way, so long as my money stays stable, I should be able to do some traveling around the country early next year. I've been dying to get down your way since I got here.

I owe you so many hugs by this point one visit probably wouldn't even begin to cover it!

Well, the whole study business isn't quite finished yet, no. But all I really needed to be near campus for was for last semester's classes. The rest of the degree requirements don't really need me to be in Sydney to do, so I've been considering coming back up here to Emerald Beach where I could move into the downstairs apartment (which would be ideal for me because my lovely parents would not charge me rent to take care of their house for them!)

I'm going to be taking a bit of a breather with my studies before I tackle my dissertation anyways. (Remind me to write about all of that sooner rather then later, or at the very least shoot you off an email)

I do, however, have a couple of enticing job possibilities in Sydney, so if they do happen to go through I'll see about finding a new place to stay in the big city. Oh hell, my possibilities are wide open; any interesting work aspects going on down Melbourne way? I'm not even picky at this point, so long as it pays enough for me to live for at least a year in suitable housing :P
