The Waltons went whale watching yesterday. Just a 45 minute trip to Redcliffe, where we missed Tanya Richards’ ordination to the diaconate. On board a catamaran, and off through Moreton Bay and to the other side of Moreton Island.
It was wonderful to be where the humpback whales are, less than an hour from Redcliffe, on a pause in their southern migration. They were curious, and enthralled us just by coming up for breath, let alone lifting their tails, ‘waving’ with their pectoral fin etc.
Sometimes, we think we have to go to the other side of the earth to see beautiful things. We forget the beauty in our own back yard.
