    I think this was taken when we had those huge waves on our coast line.

    Leave the food and dop - all your discs would be "discoing" all over the place instead of recovering properly!

    Let me throw a spanner in the works. This is not the natal coast, it is in fact Victoria Bay just outside George. I know this bay VERY well and recognize every house...

    Hey what you guys on about at least they can brag about a whale or 2 in their sumps, can anybody top that??
    On a more serious note that is devastating, Ballito still has not finished rebuilding after our high waves a few years ago.

    Speaking about whales anyone unfortunate enough to be directly involved with the false killer whales euthanised near Cape?

    No - wish I was. I just WISH I could get on the "correct" mailing/SMS list for those type of things....
    Dunno where to apply!

    I think that it is DISGUSTING!
    There are MANY MANY more things that they could have tried!

    You want to tell me that they did not have the "resources" to get the whales back? What about some decent ski-boats and a decent boat-towing rope?

    Or even a tug-boat - if need be? Don't tell me there are not enough funds to save these poor unfortunate creatures?

    Very upsetting but heard there is a big enquiry going on as the volunteers have kicked up a fuss about them being there and trying to help but not allowed to!

    Sadly, that is always the case or the excuse :( - too many corrupt people in SA spreading the funds to the wrong places :whistling:
