The South Coast

Attention: No whales were harmed in the making of this blog. “OK, I will cut to the chases.” (as King Julian would say).

We are down South of WA and we are in Albany. The accommodation was good and the miserable weather suited our miserable moods.

The bow of Cheynes IV

On our first full day we drove to a whaling station. On the Cheynes IV, we first looked at the guns = boring, the tiller = boring, the radio room = some interest, the cabins = boring and the engine room = bor… hey wait a moment …. What’s the word I’m looking for?? best room? Bingo!!

The Engine Room

After we had looked at the whale chaser, we took a tour to see what whaling is about. I was disgusted to see what they did to whales and thought how sad the whales must feel. In fact, we sat down and blocked our ears when they were talking about boiling a whale. I still think that we should stop whaling forever all around the world.

At the end of the tour, the tour guide showed us a museum like room full of skeletons of big beautiful whales. At the entrance was a small whale and in the baleen section, there was a massive skeleton of a small!!! blue whale.


Later in the week we drove down to William Bay. It held Green’s Pool. At first axo1000 went in to test the temperature of the pool. He said it was warm. When I tested it, it was FREEZING! We convinced Dad to come in and we swam all the way out to the rocks. We jumped off them in several interesting ways!

A refreshing swim

That afternoon, we walked down to Elephant Rocks. The Rocks were named because they look like a herd of Elephants standing together. We built a dam to keep ourselves interested while mum and dad took pictures of Oyster Catchers and the Rocks.

We enjoyed the South very much. Tune in next time,
