We have a pod of dolphins here who love swimming with you, top dog being "Tommy", and he/she lets you hold onto the fin and takes you for a swim.

Last week in New Zealand, a whale and her calf was beached, the local people tried so hard to get them back to sea. That it reached a point that the mother whale and calf would have to be euthanised



Then came the local "Kiwi Tommy", called to the mother whale and her calf and showed them the channel for them to get out back to the sea.

Guess what this "Kiwi Tommy" Dolphin did?

When he/she had taken the mother whale and her calf out to open waters, he/she came back and was doing fin rides and fun with the people in the water.

Love is so easy!

Tet he/she is well protected, not only by law but the populace.

The sea lions are also protected and also respected. They lay on the jetty pier and look at you as though to say..."What!"

Then they swim amongst you after their sleep..Think! "I'm Wild!". But they love you stroking them!

Well each Easter Sunday here, we chase ten pound immigrant whinging POMS!

When we catch one, we cover them in chocolate, but they still whinge!

On the Island, we have a lot of seals. If you go down the rocks to where they meet the sea, and sit very quietly, the seals will eventually bob up to have a look at you - I was surprised at just how big the bull seals are. They're too nervous to get very close - apart from when the females come out of the sea and onto the rocks to give birth, if you get too close the bull seals can cover a short distance a lot faster than a human can <yikes>

We sometimes get dolphins in Peel Bay but I've never seen them :-(

I envy you that experience Bazza but pleased to hear how the locals protect it <ok>

Dear Bazza, I believe Australia has thousands of Camels in the outback. Are they expensive to run and have you ever thought of getting one ?

An interesting question Alana.

There are thousands of wild Camels in the desert, their origin being from a time many decades ago.

The outback being a human challenge to cross in those days, Afghan Camel herders came here and opened up the outback with their camel trains.

Hence why today,the passenger railway train that now crosses Australia from Adelaide to Alice Springs and Darwin is named "The Ghan", in recognition of the Afghan Camel train.

We personally do not own a Camel, though friends of friends have a herd of Camels at Arkaroola. They operate a tourist Camel trek across the desert, which we have experienced.

Ask me another!
