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, coincidentally on the weekend of the whale festival. I believe that the 2017 Whale Festival is on this weekend.
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 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 are, 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.
