Thar she blows ......

Had a very pleasant Saturday arvo - drove to Lorne to meet Adrian & Chrissy for lunch.

On the way back we decided to go the Great Ocean Road route, even though it's a lot longer than returning via Colac.  Between Apollo Bay & Marengo (the western end of Apollo Bay) we came upon a traffic jam (actually, the second for the trip - the local Copper was conducting random breath & licence checks just east of the town).  Lots of cars parked on both sides of the road - figured it could only be one thing, so we pulled over too.

Sure enough, there were two whales gambolling just off-shore in the shallow water.  Stopped and watched them for about ten minutes.  Even though they were relatively close to shore, it was difficult to get close-up pictures of them.  Did manage some, two of which are included in this story, but that was the closest we could get, even on maximum zoom.
