Sapphire Coast, Australia

Hi Sea Fans!

Australia is such a beautiful place and the people are so friendly!

My latest stopover was the Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre (SCMDC) in Eden, NSW, where I was lucky enough to go to the Eden Whale Festival.  I went on a whale watching cruise with Cat Balou in Twofold Bay and was named captain for a day!   

At SCMDC I joined the education programs and chatted to the students about their favourite marine animals.  
In between, I got to know all the animals in the tanks (I got up close and personal with the octopus…I think he liked me. I could sit for hours at the tank just watching him swim and play, they really are amazing animals) 
and discover their marine artefacts.

The staff and visitors were so nice to me and I loved every minute of my visit.   Thanks Jillian Riethmuller for hosting me!! (

I was sad to leave the coast and all my new friends, but we can always stay in touch through the internet.
So long Sapphire Coast, hello Dolphin Discovery!
This hoodie for a wetsuit was a bit big!

Have a great week Sea Fans!
Chat soon.
