Whale at the Ballina wall

KAREN Barlow of East Ballina grabbed these photos of a humpback whale, complete with an escort of dolphins, checking out the North Wall.

"As it was heading back out, two boats full of paddlers came back in to the river, unaware the whale was there," Ms Barlow said.

"The first went right over the top, the second may have made contact."

An amazing experience for paddlers and watchers alike.
