Hout Bay's Wild Side!

The South Easter is back with avengeance.
So are the sardines. So are the seagulls. Even the whales!
These were taken Saturday morning.
This guy (er gull) conveniently hovered in the photo.

These two just gatecrashed my photo to be honest.

By now I was onto it with fast film!

The large seagull I expected here just disappeared.
But it shows the wind anyway.

After taking a few windswept shots of the bay, I suddenly spotted the whale cow and calf right under my feet! Bottom left. Look like rocks, more agile though.

I waited a while to get this fluke shot. ha ha.

Not much sailing today.
