This was today`s Sunrise which was taken about 6 o`clock this morning.
This blog was written yesterday but I couldn`t get on line. It was after all Friday the 13th.
Today I am writing my blog in the garden as it`s too hot to do any digging. I can see the sky divers drifting towards the beach but there is an absence of garden birds around.
I tried to find some small meteorites on the beach earlier but was not successful today. It is quite easy to find them, all you need is a strong magnet and a plastic bag to cover it. All you have to do then is move it around in the sand and see what sticks to it. It was a lot easier in Hermanus as there were a lot of rock pools which caught everything that was washed up at high tide. This is a large meteorite and did not burn out completely and probably landed in the sand as it hasn`t got signs of quick cooling. another way to find the small ones is to put a magnet at the bottom of the down pipe taking rainwater from the roof.
I think Robberg beach is a better place to try as that is where I found the Seal skulls and many other unusual things that made something to write about in the earlier blogs.
We still have a few Whales in the bay but you have to go out in a boat to appreciate them at close quarters. Standing on the balcony at the local shopping center I saw two Whales yesterday either playing or mating, they were about 150 meters out in the bay. No boats seem to be going out lately, possibly because there are not enough visitors around. The dolphins are the biggest attraction as they stay the whole year round and there are many different species. Ocean Safaris is still doing Dolphin trips most of the time and it`s cheaper than Whale watching. The reason being that it`s a shorter time out, but you may still see a lone Whale or two. The Bridies Whale seems to stay the longest. The Orca is not seen very often and usually only comes twice a year. This looks close but I just forgot to zoom out, It was actually over 50 meters away.
It will soon be time to pull any greenery in the garden that is not doing anything, to take to Alice on Saturday. The carrots didn`t do very much as they were put in too early and the Broccoli has been beheaded.
I must put in a few of the old people jokes to fill in, being able to laugh at yourself is very good therapy. J
