Whales



We left Bona bay this morning for Cape Upstart. With winds beginning from a Sw direction in the 15 knot range, and then switching to SE 15/20 knots. We had a GREAT sail today!! We were coming up to Cape Upstart on the SE pt, and we saw whales!!! A mother and her calf. When first spotted they weren't to far from us, but mostly just on top of the water. We were cruising right along, so it didn't take long for them to be behind us, and once they were they got very active in the water. We watched them for as long as we could. They were breaching, and flapping their flippers. Jerrica and I were both clicking away, but we didn't get any good photos. This is the best of the bunch and I had to zoom up.
