Whale Watching

The little bit bigger coast-town next to the really tiny coast-town we were staying in while in South Africa is the whale watching capital of the world. Really!

So one day, we headed to Hermanas to see us some whales. Hopefully.

On the way we saw this sign. It made me laugh. Say whaaaaat?!  That is one long word!

After a little education about what we were looking for…

… we headed to one of many lookout spots.

And we started watching. Can you see my two men down on the rocks?

Girlie and I stayed up on the pier. It was pretty windy and she liked it best in the stroller. And when she was in the stroller she insisted on being buckled, even though it’s not necessary. And if she insists on something, I often recommend just accommodating her, if possible. I think you know what I mean. Funny girl.

We watched and scanned and looked. For awhile. We wondered what might happen when one was spotted. Well, someone let out a big scream and all heads jerked in the same direction. A whale!! Way out there!! Do you see it?

Splash! That was a whale!!  Even though it was far and nearly impossible to actually see the whale… it was most exciting, nonetheless!

We watched for more but didn’t see any more that day.

I love my boy’s hugs. Me and this baby get a lot of lovin’!

This is what we saw, apparently.

A little lunch at Steers and then we called it a successful whale-watching day.
