 A perfect day for whale watching, it was windy but not cold.
 The water welcomed us with hospitable kindness.
 Dolphins swam along.

 Whales showed off their shiny backs.

 One even flipped her tail for us.
It was a fantastic day of messing about in a boat.  I'm grateful. Thank you, Maine.  YOU are beautiful.

Oh how beautiful!!! The water is so pretty, is it blue? The sky looks very blue though.
Are you going to miss the snow in Denver this week?
I am so glad you are having fun. I am so glad you had apple cider today.
It makes me feel like I am on vacation too. I love your pictures and your posts.

Hi Karen! I'm trying to catch up with everyone after a long break!
How lucky to get to meet some whales!

My one and only whale watching experience was memorable for the wrong reasons ... everyone on board was seasick. I was trying so hard not to get seasick that I barely noticed the whales when we finally did see them. Oh well ... glad your experience was a good one.
I read your previous post too. The place you are staying in looks wonderful, as does the food. Yummy. Have fun.
