I have a Whale if a TaleπŸ˜‰

A great day, albeit cool and windy, our host suggested if you want to be guaranteed to see whales jumping-you should go to an aquariumπŸ₯΄. To see the whales like we saw today, he said is a one in three experience. Needless to say our whale watching tour exceeded our expectations πŸ₯° Humpback Whales (young mom and calf), Bottlenose and Short Beaked Common Dolphins (galore), Albatross, Fur Seal and New friends...
