Reports said that there were two mothers with calves at Basham’s Beach, betwen Port Elliot and Middleton so we decided to drive down and have a look.
The first whale we saw.
After realizing the whales were too far out for us to watch we went to check out the ruins on Basham’s Farm.
“The Legendairy Cow” sculpted by James Stewart and Tracey Grivell. Note the spilt milk.

We walked further along the path enjoying the environment.

It was time for some lunch and the Pt Elliot Bakery called…. it was disappointing. A notice made it clear that no food catered for allergies so we drove to Middleton then Victor Harbor.
I see whales. Middleton
Yeah! I see a whale tail! Victor Harbor

Maybe another day we’ll meet the wildlife
After lunch at Victor we headed back towards Basham’s to see if the whales had moved in closer calling into Horseshoe Bay on the way.
We had a lovely day out even if the whales didn’t come to entertain us.
