Real whale today.

Today I saw a whale just splashing for fun right outside our room. First the tail is up…

…splash.

It was pretty cool. The whale just kept splashing about. Apparently at the beach where the kids and Dude went the whales were breaching. Oh well, a whale playing right outside my room is pretty nice too.

Whale ahoy

I saw an awesome whale jumping about when I went on a little walk tonight. Unfortunately I only had my crappy phone to take the pic. 🙁 So I didn’t even bother, I just came home and made up this photo… Heehee… Could you tell it was a fake?! My kids didn’t even see the black blob that I drew in the middle of the ocean as my faux whale so maybe you didn’t either? ((What else would that black blob be after I title the post “whales ahoy?!”)) After taking these I’m now spoiled. My long lens on my good camera does such a nice job. Maybe tomorrow I’ll remember it when I head out. 😉

The cruise was a success!

Last night on the sunset “cruise” we saw many whales. I really wanted one to jump up right next to us… but you can’t be greedy I guess! 🙂 It was pretty amazing.

Lazy whales this morning.

We are going on a sunset “cruise” tonight… assuming the flood warnings don’t materialize we might see some really close up. 🙂

Energetic whale

This whale jumped so many times that I was able to catch him on my phone! I wish I had my other camera… maybe tomorrow. I have never seen so many breaching whales, in fact I’d never seen one before this week and so far I think I’ve seen like five! Sunday I was calling them all lazy because no one was jumping and now they are jumpin’ left and right! Yeah for energetic whales. 🙂

Whale pics.

I found a few whales! I also found the setting on my camera where I just hold the shutter button down and it takes picture after picture so I got the play by play of each whale swimming up and then down. Yes… I know, I’m a little outa’ control but what can I say? I get so excited when I see them. 🙂
