Today’s conditions on the water were ideal for kitesurfing but extremely difficult for whale watching. The dreaded NE wind arrived overnight making conditions very sloppy and with no sunshine whales & the ocean blended together. We headed north & finally found a mother & calf which we followed from Haycock Point to Leonard’s Island. We had a number of close encounters but they were not in active mode. Bottlenose Dolphins were seen at Aslings Beach as we returned home.
