The other day I saw a post about whale watching from beatravelling: Onshore Whale Watching. It reminded me of an unplanned visit to Hermanus, near Cape Town a few years ago. By pure coincidence I arrived on the weekend of the whale festival. The festival is normally held towards the end of season when whales and their calves can be seen.
Of course he photos pre-date this blog, but I processed a few and uploaded them to a gallery: Hermanus During the 2010 Whale Festival.
Hermanus and Whales
Hermanus is a town in the Western Cape area of South Africa, a bit over an hours drive from Cape Town. Between July and November whales come to the area, known as Walker Bay, and are visible from the shore. The annual Whale Festival is a great occasion with many visitors coming to the town.
Watch this space, we may be there before too long.
