As promised, here are some of the shots from our whale watching excursion. We started off in Bellingham, went to San Juan Island (Friday Harbor), and made the return voyage. I will say, I was a bit disappointed with the adventure. For a whale watching cruise, there was a lot of cruising and very little whale watching (a grand total of ~6mins for an 8+ hr excursion). Nevertheless, here we go:
Grandparents were spoiling him with brownies. Doesn’t he look pleased with himself.
Ich und meine Frau. Sitting at the Bow of the ship.
We found a window to peak our heads out of and none other than grandpa was down on the deck snapping pics.
A couple ocras surfacing.
Three whale coming up to the surface. We even got them blowing out water.
Um . . . cool looking rock.
Here’s a hangout spot for bachelor sea lions. No, seriously, all the sea lions that can’t win a harem for themselves find refuge on an island together. They aren’t allowed to rejoin the pack.
A short video of the whales swimming about looking for something to eat.
Here is a very shaky video of the sea lions doing their thing.
Stay tuned tomorrow for more adventures in Washington. I’m certain we will be doing something outdoors with a gorgeous view.
