Whales August 28   Leave a comment

 
Today,there was an abundance of whales. The first whale I spotted was breeching a couple of miles off the Seaway. Too close to the shore to stop we headed in the direction of a couple of other blows. Upon reaching the area where we had spotted the whales taking a dive, we waited patiently, looking all around the boat, for their presence on the surface again. What we didn’t expect was one whale to come up right beside the boat. He was so close, that we couldn’t see water between him and the boat. I am sure he must have been  removing the barnacles from his body by rubbing against and under Spirit. A lady on board offered the idea that maybe he thought we were another whale. What-ever it was, we were very happy to share our space with him as he swam under, beside, in front and behind, keeping an eye on us as he would bring his head up out of the water in what is called a ‘spy hop’.
 
Another day that I have to put up there with the best. There seem to be plenty of them these days.
