Whales ahoy!

We were so excited to see whales frolicking off the coast on our weekend away. 
I took these photos from our deck in the holiday cabin that we stayed in.
It's an amazing feeling watching these enormous, beautiful creatures playing in the water. 
It looked like there was a mother and a baby and there could have been more.
There was a lot of tail slapping an an occasional leap out of the water. 
All greeted by squeals of delight from onlookers.
Very special.
They were relatively close to shore-but still a bit tricky to get good shots.

  10. Wow - those are GREAT shots! I used to live in Alaska and we saw whales all the time, but capturing them on a picture - that's hard to do! Great work.
