There are no snow trips and cheese platters for Collingwood supporters nor Pinot Noir but after today's drubbing a few Melbourne members maybe reassessing why they cancelled this year's booking at Falls Creek.

Looks like it's a whale though it's swimming around a broad circle so may just be cruising.

That boat is awfully close though, if it's not assisting then it could be inside the regulatory zone.

The barge is approaching gingerly from the south-east. The whale seems to have vanished.
