Whale Watching....

For our vacation we decided to stay home.  Mostly Patrick wanted to rest his back and we didn't really have the cash to do anything big.  But the ONE thing I really wanted to do was go whale watching.  And we did!

Take a look at the faces of these kids after we saw some whales!

It was quite an amazing day! Even though it took us about 1 and 1/2 hours to get to the whale but when we did, what sites we saw!  We mostly followed a Mom and her calf.  The Mom was slapping the water with her fins (they told us they were cleaning the barnacles off of them) and the calf was having fun BREACHING!  Yes!  We saw this whale breach about 6 times.  What an amazing site.  We never got a good picture of the breach but several of the splash.  Here are a few really good ones from the day...

Another amazing day with my family.

I'm jealous....I didn't think anyone really saw a whale on a whale watch. We went on one years ago and saw nothing. Great pictures. Glad you had a good time.

What a great day you had with the whales. Looks like something I would like to do. The boys look like they are really enjoying the experience. I want to hear all about it.
