A day on the bay

There's nothing like spending a day on the water, whether it's at the beach or scooting across the bay as we did on Sunday - especially when the sun is shining and the clouds are fighting a losing battle for a spot in the sky! Despite some pretty stiff onshore winds we boarded the MS Eye-Spy and crossed Moreton bay to visit pods of humpback whales on their annual migration down the East coast.

It was such a great lazy day, and the whales were also certainly lazy. They were content to spend most of the time rolling on their backs and working on their blubber. We saw six or eight whales along the coast of Moreton Island and a few pesky dolphins for good measure. I borrowed a zoom lens for the day (thanks Ming!) but the whales were content to mostly lurk rather than breach, so no National Geographic images this time, but going on dates with Laura and you always have a supermodel on hand - wow!
