Friday August 5th
|Storm over Twilight Cove|
Most of the morning was spent driving the 30 km into Twilight Cove along a narrow track..very stoney at times and quite good at others. We spent the afternoon walking on the white sands of the beach. Stormy skies and rainbows added to the beauty of the Cove which is enclosed by the Baxter Cliffs. Late in the afternoon a pod of whales was discovered. There were 4 cows and 4 calves quite close to the beach. We spent ages watching them floating amongst the waves..at times showing their fins and noses. What a privilege to be so close to these wonderful creatures in the wild. They were only metres from the sand and gave us a great view of their afternoon activity.
