SAMI'S COLOURFULWORLD

Monday Mural - The Whales

During my trip to the South-west of Western Australia, before Christmas I spotted this mural of humpback whales on the wall of the Albany Backpackers lodge in Spencer Street, Albany.

Both the Humpback whales and the Southern Right Whales pass close to Albany during their migration, breeding and feeding in the bays of the Southern Ocean.

There are many whale watching tours departing from Albany from late May to early October.

  2. Beautiful mural! In the last weeks so many wales stranded and died at the German coasts, it´s a true pity. Scientists have no real clue why...

    1. That's sad, I hadn't heard of it! I hope the scientists find the reason and can prevent it in the future!

  5. Dearest Sami,
    That looks like fun making and splashing humpback whales. Quite appropriate for the region as you do get them.
    Hugs,

  8. Its always a thrill to see a whale breech the water. Even in a mural. It reminds us of how magnificent these creatures are. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
