AOA – ROTTNEST ISLAND WEEKEND 2017

4/3/2017 – Around the Island by Cycle

This year we stop to have a look at the Shearwaters, and learn a bit about their breeding habits.  Another good reason to keep all cats and dogs off the island.

The scenery is always spectacular, I never tire of this wonderful cycle, you could almost stop every 100 metres and take photos.

Then there are always the ospreys to watch, unfortunately we are not at the right time of year to be whale spotting. One day!

There is always another scenic ocean view.

And the SUP boards to be jealous of, I just knew I should have brought my board over! (Not going to happen, I have enough to cope with lugging the bike and my weekend gear over). But look at the seals ‘fin sailing’, they are so relaxed. I have only found this term related to seals at Rottnest, so presume it is a local term. But apparently seals do this to either cool off if they are too warm, or warm up if they are cold, raising a flipper out of the water to warm it in the sun and thus increase their blood temperature or to cool it in the breeze and thus decrease their blood temperature.

To us they just look to be enjoying themselves.

And I am enjoying myself also.  Great day out.
