Photo of whale taken from our boat - that's how close they came!

Warwick’s close encounter

Yesterday we went out fishing with Rob on Lombadina’s new boat and were blown away when a pod of Humpback Whales came right up to our boat and then swam under it. Warwick got a picture of one of the Whales eyes – they were that close! We watched them breach and tail slap as they disappeared into the distance – AMAZING!!!

Afterwards Warwick and Brendan caught some lovely fish for dinner which we cooked up that night – it doesn’t get fresher than that! Not only is Warwick a gifted film director but he is one amazing cook! Brendan picked some mangos from the tree at Lombadina, which Warwick included in a tossed salad along with some fish sauce the chef at Kooljaman kindly gave us… it is so nice to feel a part of this beautiful community and eat the way the locals do. Warwick cooked up the fish on the BBQ and we ate it on the balcony of his safari tent at Kooljaman enjoying the sounds of the ocean.
