Strumble Diary 12/09/2017

A little late getting this post up but worth waiting for. Yesterday afternoon was getting increasingly more dreary as the first named storm of the Autumn closed in. The light was below what I'd like but we went anyway. A strong and increasing westerly was pushing the swells through with a choppy wave set on top. The porps didn't mind though and were showing extremely well despite the conditions as you can see in the images below. Wave after wave were moving through the tide race and at one stage we had at least ten if not twelve animals foraging just a couple of hundred metres off the lookout. Several breaches were observed during the period with many of the animals feeding in pairs or more. The weather eventually closed in so we left just before 4.50pm.
