Having a whale of a time
We're only in HerveyBay, Australia's whale-watching capital, a couple of days. It depended on the weather whether we would book in to go out and have a look at the humpback whales and today's forecast was good so off we went.
Our new grandson has put on 500 gms since he was born three weeks ago. The baby whales drink 600 litres of milk a day and put on a remarkable number of kilos. (OK, I wasn't listening properly, but it was a big number.)
