The hill at the backyard allows for views over the house, across the road, and out to sea. In the past we have seen large pods of Bottle-nosed dolphins and Humpback Whales from the yard. While not the best seawatching vantage point, it's certainly a most convenient one and I shall have to pay more attention in future to what passes by.
While I wish I had a lens capable of capturing the moment, for now at least that is not to be. Alas, the following photo is not my own.
