After a cool start to the day this morning, the sun came out and it turned into a gloriously mild and sunny winter's day. A lunchtime meeting with a blogger friend of Morgan's, and her family, down at Coogee beach turned into a great afternoon of eating, chatting, taking photos and spot of seaside strolling.
We walked along to the 'off lead' dog park around the point from the beach, and chanced upon a crowd gathering to watch a couple of whales frolicking just off shore. I didn't have a strong enough lens to capture the whales (although Morgan did!), but I did see some wonderful leaps through a pair of binoculars.
But, oh the PUPPERS! Dogs everywhere. This beautiful Shepherd came and sat with me for a while, received some pats and sat for a few pics, before heading off again.
This miniature Schnauser was one of a pair, owned by a lovely lady who stopped and chatted, encouraged her dogs to pose and receive pats, and watched whales with us for a bit. There were dogs of all shapes and sizes, playing in big friendly packs.
