whaley good joy

Bondi has been alive with whales this season. As they travel back south towards warmer water they’ve been putting on quite a show. I was chatting with our local barista about their displays and he immediately became animated and told me about seeing one in the ocean as he was driving along the coast. His gestures became bigger as he told the tale and left the coffee making aside. He capped off the energetic story by saying ‘they just make you happpy’. And boy, is he right.

There’s something about seeing such a large creature leap into the air and seeming to defy gravity as they twist and flip backward or give a playful flip of their massive tale. It just feels special to bear witness to their choreography and they definitely leave JOY in their wake.
