I love going on trips that include whale watching. In Australia, you can do this off Hervey Bay and many other places along both the eastern and western seaboards especially when the whales are migrating north or south. I also whale watched off Cape Cod but even the regular whale there was not present that day.
These plants are scientifically named Epacris species. This image is of an Epacris impressa named because of the indentations at the base of each petal. I took this photo when driving to English Town in northern Tasmania.
