Mark's Birthday (part 2 - 25th August)

We finally managed to reschedule the whale watching trip, originally organised for Mark's actual birthday, on Saturday the 25th of August (over two months after his birthday!!!). After several weeks of wonderfully sunny weather the day before the scheduled day was overcast and gloomy and we were worried the expedition would be cancelled again. Luckily, however, the Saturday of the trip dawned without a cloud in the sky and we had a wonderful time and saw turtle, dolphins and plenty of whales.
Our captain and guide, from Whales in Paradise, was very informative about the houses of the rich and famous, even if he did crack some terrible jokes ("Kylie Minogue owned an apartment there... I should be so lucky!").

The day ended with a quick bite to eat at Surfers and then it was back home.
