I love this job! Every day has it’s own highlight. Though some days offer up extra special memories; whether they be unknowingly placing an former Olympic rower in middle of the canoe without a paddle, or one of the Fraser Gallop Estate poodles attempting to decapitate a rabbit as we dined on our gourmet lunch, there are some days the experience will be remembered for a lifetime.
Yesterday a renowned New Zealand journalist joined us on tour. Here on assignment prior to the release of the new Baz Luhrmann film, Australia. As we sat atop the Wilyabrup Cliffs following a magnificent day of wildflower spotting she commented
“This has been the most perfect day. All we need now is a whale to jump out of the water”
As if Baz himself had cued the action sequence; a Humpback Whale proceeded to spray and splash at the finish of her sentance. Remarkable stuff.
