I spend Friday morning in Hermanus (originally called Hermanuspietersfontein, but shortened as the name was too long for the postal service). This town is on the southern coast of the Western Cape province of South Africa and is famous for southern right whale watching. The whales can be seen from the cliffs in the town centre as early as June and usually depart in early December. They were once hunted in the nearby town of Betty’s Bay, but are now protected to ensure the survival of the species. The Old Harbour Museum contains several exhibitions that explain the whaling industry.
The building on the right, houses the Old Harbour Museum.
I am also linking this post to Raewyn’s blog: decocraftsdigicrafts, for the five photos five stories challenge.( Day 3)
This is the second round of this challenge for me, and I would like any one that would like to join in this great challenge to do so!
