... Lukas. We just chilled there for a while playing games and skimming stones before going for a 2 hour stroll along the seafront. This was really awesome, I find the water so calming and peaceful and I had fun making a fool of myself - I decided to dip my toes in the water except kind of misjudged how high the wave coming towards me was and soaked my jeans up to ...
... the snow is melting in the mountains in spring. The first clue Ben got that there were any animals there were some tracks in the dirt. We later saw some sheep roaming around freely by the bank.

The boat tour see where we are and also make their way over to the same spot, it's only when the boat pulls up that you realise exactly how big these whales are! When the whales are ready to start feeding again they dive back down and lift their tails out of the water. Once out of sight we spotted a pod of over 100 dusky dolphins, they are so playful and doing heaps of acrobatics! So funny to watch, they jump so high out of ...
