Look what we did today...





Colin and I had so much fun! I was given a whale watching tour from a customer for a late Christmas tip and we finally used it today. They said it was the best day they've had all season. There are ninety resident whales that live in the Juan de Fuca Strait, and we saw all of them! Including the two week old baby. I was so overwhelmed when they popped up out of a deep dive only 20-30 meters away from our boat that I got a little misty eyed (that's the last three photos...I had to zoom out to get so many in one shot). It was a perfect afternoon. And to top it all off Colin was a joy today! That's a great day for mom!

I hope everyone else had a fantastic day too! :)

Wow! How lucky for you!! I've only ever seen whales off the coast of Hawaii when we were in Maui, but they weren't nearly that close! I'm jealous!! Glad you had a great day!!

WOW! Amazing pics Cate! I would LOVE to do a whale watching tour sometime...I've only seen them a few times, but not like THAT!

Oh Wow Cate, this is fabulous, I have heard of many people going on the tour and not even seeing one, so you are very fortunate to have seen so many.

I must take part in this sometime, perhaps whenthe girls are just a little older so they can enjoy it.
