May 22nd, 2008

This might be my last post for a week and a half or so. Beloved and I are going on a holiday. We’re going to leave Poss and BF in charge of the house (scary thought) and have a week in a timeshare at Lakes Entrance. That puts us about halfway to Radio Boy’s house, so we’ll go visit him the following weekend. I’m so looking forward to it. Of course, getting on for winter it’s not exactly going to be swimming weather, but that’s okay. Plenty other stuff to see. I’m just looking forward to sleep-ins.

Also Radio Boy tells me that whale season has started! Major yaaaaaaaay! Whales are my best thing (don’t tell my cats I said that.) I’ve seen Humpbacks and Southern Rights, but sometimes you get to see Sperm Whales and even Big Blues up Radio Boy’s way. It would be my ultimate thing to see a Blue Whale. Also Eden, which is near where he lives, is very famous for its Orcas. I can do a blog on them when I get back (I’m sure I can do some sort of segue between me and whales). The Orca pod was a bit politcally incorrect, it helped the whalers, but still an amazing story.

Anyway, I intend taking my puter with me, but not sure if I’ll be able to connect to the net. If I can, yay. Live blogs. If not, well, I’ll see you in June. And, as my old Weight Watchers leader used to say ‘I hope to see less of you’ and hope you see less of me, cause looking forward to lots of walks.

    Your getaway sounds wonderful. dh and I used to spot whales from the hills above a beach called just “Beach View” outside of (west?) Port Elizabeth (in SA), and on the mountainside above False Bay - Indian Ocean side of Cape Town. Also porpoises or dolphins - dh always spotted them before me. I had forgotten about that till you mentioned it! I hope you get to see a blue whale. I love (LOVE) reading about your love of all things growing and thriving. Sounds like you are doing very well with the eating plan. RubyJean ;)

    Enjoy your vacay! I loved the pics; it’s very interesting to see how different your flora is, despite the fact that we are both on the ocean. Shark towers??? Something else we don’t have despite several horrific incidents—well, we do have elevated lifeguard seats so I suppose we aren’t totally unprotected. Saw a neat pic in the newspaper last yr. of a kayaker (sp?) here by a breaching whale; surprised the h*ll out of the guy!
