spring whale watching
An unexpected invitation to go whale watching brought Sadie and I out onto the water off the coast here. We armed ourselves with sea sick tablets, snacks, camera and wonderful friends. On our way out we saw sea lions and a small pod of elusive dolphins, a sailing ship and the islands off in the distance. The weather was nice and the ride smooth. The captain chatted about this and that through the harbor leading us out in to open waters. News of a large pod of grey whales off the coast took us out about 8 miles and a bit north. And then, "there she blows!" calls the captain and the show began. It was a very nice day, thank you Gaileys!
