Short video of a wonderful close encounter with a Whale.
An inquisitive Brydes whale kept following our whale watch tour boat and popped up right alongside us!
Thanks Simon's Town Boat Company.

Our Simon's Town waterfall is actually made up of several different ones, only one of which is visible from the main road below - that is the tallest one. (It is also not easily or safely accessible). Above it are two more, the easy to reach Admirals waterfall, and below it another.
Here are some pictures from closer up.

Our fabulous ORCA friends back in False Bay this morning!
About 10 animals with a few familiar dorsal fins amongst them, including the notorious “Port”; the alleged shark killer! But they clearly weren’t on his menu today as the shark operators reported good sightings.
It appears as if the orca were talking to fish as they spent very little time on the surface, but for a period of almost 20 minutes, 3 of them tailed & swam alongside 2 Bryde’s whales, who were clearly fazed by their presence, but the orca made no attempt at a predation.
What added to this amazing experience was the presence of 2 very young calves in the pod.
Happy days!

Well done SAWDN/NSRI for freeing the entangled southern right whale off Sunnycove (Cape Town) this afternoon. An extremely dangerous task,expertly executed.

Southern Right whales don't need to feed during their migration to our coast, but certainly won't pass up on an availble krill treat.

Jubilee Square & Jetty, Simon's Town

Able Seaman Just Nuisance, ever present on Jubilee Square. The only animal ever to be enlisted in the Royal Navy. Mascot of the HMS Afrikander. Celebrated worldwide on the first of April every year. Buried with full military honour at Klawer Camp, on Redhill mountain behind Simon's Town. This brass statue on Jubilee Square in Simon's Town created by Jean Doyle in 1985 may ,arguably, be the most touched dog in history.....?

Cape Town is known for all the nook and cranny hangouts that can make an ordinary day something that much more. However, when it comes to a real man-adventure on a budget there are options for great day trips with the bros.

Putting it into perspective!

The worst drought in over a century continues to plague Cape Town, South Africa. The city & suburbs effectively have only 11% usable water left within its reservoirs leaving residents "waiting on a miracle." Today on CNN, I covered the latest drought & dam level information for The Mother City and described the elements behind the crisis, while weighing in on what's to come. This is not a short term phenomenon, it is a long term problem. Water conservation starts with you.
