What has 10 boobs, a chicken bum and recently found its mate wearing a belt of fish?
nope this is not a crazy dad fun pun, for real life
I still dunno what they really are butit does look pretty mad and the engineering behind it has gotta be interesting
Here’s some fun facts I found on the Skywhales wikipedia page
“Skywhale’s length and her pendulous breasts make her more difficult to land “
Thats a pilot politely say it flys like a bucket of s%$t but damn its good to look at
“Australian Capital Territory’s government invited five specialist balloon manufacturers to submit proposals to construct The Skywhale, but the Bristol-based company Cameron Balloons was the only one to provide a bid.”
I can just imagine this coming across a engineers desk and them slowly backing away i think there is a key reason why its limited to 100 flights pendulous boobies make for working out fatigue stresses somewhat difficult ..
I don’t think the National Art Galley is ready to be graced with our presence in its fullest form yet or maybe we just too wild.
We did however ascend into the room of the infinitypumpkins after a long wait.. which leads to the next awesome pumpkin pun…
How do you fix a broken pumpkin? With a pumpkin patch!
First time for me… but upon some further research, seems the local aborigines have been coming here for at least 7500 years..
I can see why, its a natural water source, it has some really cool large overhanging rocks which provide natural shelters and its protected from wild weather. It is considered that this place was a major campsite for the Dharawal people when travelling up and down the coast. The coast track was probably a local aboriginal route before we turned it into the ‘Coastal Track’.

I found this unmarked track leading off the main coastal walk and had a quick squiz, got half way up and thought yeah nothing interesting here and turned around. I was kinda suprised to seethis this young bloke coming up the same path and he asked how the falls looked… i was like ..’dunno, what falls’?
Needless to say he thought it was worthwhile to keep going so I checked it out.
Not a bad spot and it was really pumping with all the rain, i’ll have to check this one out again later…

Much more manageable conditions this time, less wind and only a torrential downpour every hours or so…
Here’s a great pun : Why are oceans so meticulous? They like to be pacific

With #kasefilters, pacifically the #magneticcpl with the #magneticnd – these are great for this kinda stuff, with the 24-70mm lens hood the front element stays nice and dry and its heaps easy to get those filters on and off.
When I first came to this spot, it was nothing but lowland shrub bush, no paths just the sound of the crashing of the waves on the cliffs to guide you and the ever waiting facing eatingspiders….. no spiders on this day, either they have clued up to the fact i’m gonna whack them, or they have been all blown off the face of the earth by the gale force winds.. or all cooked by the fires of 12+ months ago…
either way, whilst they form a very important function in our ecosystem, like mozzies, ticks and flies… i would not miss them
