A whale of a time...

Last week some dear friends and I drove to San Carlos to see whales. We were lucky to have a beautiful clear day and see lots and lots of them. It is so impressive to see the size of these mammals (three times the size of our pangas) and yet be playful and friendly with us. They were three or four in a pack. They would dive under our boats and come out the other end. Sometimes flipping their tale or coming up for air, in whichever case got us completely wet. It was a bit like feeling as a five year old again, rolling up our sleeves, leaning over the boats carelessly, for a chance to touch their beautiful almost velvet like skin. It was an experience out of this world ... For me as a piscis, I felt like I wanted to become one with the ocean.
