Whales

A travel blog entry by edandkate

... we were able to see him dive and got a good view of the tale. Moments after the whale disappeared a circular 'footprint' of flat water is left behind as the water rushes to fill the space where the whale had been. In the days of whaling they thought it was left behind by oils in the whale's skin, we were told.

I arrived in Kaikoura a week ago. I've been here a couple of times before: five years ago with Tine, we went whale watching, last October I went fishing with Blair and Aine - still one of the best fish and chips meals I've had in NZ so far and only about a month ago I came here with mum & dad and I went whale watching once again.

So there are two activities left for me to do: dolphin and seal swimming. I opted for the dolphin one. Minor detail: I arrived ...
