A Whale of a Surprise

In A Whale of a Celebration, I posted a gallery of shots I took during a morning off the Sunshine Coast watching whales heading south to their Antarctic feeding grounds.

The experience was a gift – one of the most wonderful experiences of my life – and a total surprise.  I thought, to round out the day, I’d post a photograph my hostess took, of us and a whale – there’s me, white sunglasses pushed back – the one without a camera to my eye.

A wonderful surprise

  2. Whale watching trips are so fun! I mean you know they’re big, but until you’re out there on the water and in their space you don’t really appreciate how BBBBBIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGGG big really is! 🙂
    Happy Holidays to you!

  4. How wonderful. It was so close, and spyhopping to check you all out. The Alaska humpbacks are here in Hawaii now. I really should go on a whale-watching cruise. Lucky you. What a neat surprise.

    • I’m overjoyed to hear that Madhu! I agree it deserves to be on one’s bucket list – Writecrites says the Alaska humpbacks are in Hawaii now. I’ll certainly be saving to take myself out again once I eventually get back to Oz (thinking I won’t go till after Easter now … 🙂 )

  5. You are so lucky to have them come so close and personal. My whale watching a few years back only saw them in the distance and I thought that was pretty awesome, what a fantastic close up you got
