It really does feel like summer this week and with the blasting temperatures it sure was nice to get out on the water to feel the sea breeze. Not only that but the water was calm and blue too.

Heading out from Victoria we weren’t sure what we might find…. but just a few miles east of Race Rocks we were lucky enough to the the T18s/T19s. This group is made up of 2 females and 2 male sons (pictured above and below). It is thought that T18 is T19s mum but we aren’t 100% sure!

It was too good of a day not to venture over to Race Rocks Lighthouse. As expected for this time of year we were greeted by some rather large sea lions and some smaller Harbour seals

It’s always great to see them swimming in the fast waters too.
