Dolphin Surfing

 


 

Wow wow wow, what a day🤩🤩🤩🤩 We spent most of the day with friends sitting on the rocks on top of Grassy Head watching the Humpback Whales migrating south with their new babies in tow. They came so close, it was very windy so I’ve added some nice relaxing music to my video. A couple of Dolphins came in too and one went surfing with the whales, yes I know, hard to believe but I captured it on my video, just fantastic to see. It was hard to pull ourselves away as in the distance we could see so many more splashes still coming, I think anyone out whale watching today from any of the coastal viewpoints would have had a fantastic day.

Frolicking Humpback Whale

 

Anthony didn’t get too many pics but their white tails and amazing blue ocean make for great photography.

So before you all go to bed, you could make yourselves a nice cuppa and watch my relaxing video and I’m sure you will all have sweet dreams…. Please enjoy,
Steph and Anthony.

Wow, what a day, we got up early and got out to the Khao Yai National Park  nice and early around 7am. It was such a great feeling revisiting this park as we had spent 4 days here last year.

We already had a heads up as to the best places to see birds and where some of the fruiting trees are, though we are a month early this year and those particular trees aren’t fruiting just yet. But it didn’t matter as the best way to see birds is to just drive around slowly with your windows down and if you hear anything different or lots of bird chatter you just pull over a bit and put your hazard lights on and people here are very obliging and they go around you. Everyone does it here and it’s a great way to see birds as it’s more open on the roads than trying to spot them in the dense rainforest.

 


 


 


 


You get these bird storms here where all of a sudden a whole bunch of birds will just arrive and there would be maybe 6 or 8 different species of birds all hanging out together. It’s crazy and hard for Anthony to know where to point the camera because I’m so excited too and telling him what I am seeing through my binoculars so it gets a bit confusing. Of course males are the best colours so we try to focus on them( sorry girls). But this didn’t happen today but we probably weren’t in the right spot.

The Sights and sounds of Khao Yai

It’s a fantastic park with so much variety, there’s waterfalls, rivers,  lakes, open grasslands too. Their wildlife list is incredible. Anyway the photos and video speak for themselves, we are really tired now and want to get up there just a little bit earlier as the sun was already pesky at 7 am, Enjoy.
Bye for now Steph and Anthony.
