Whale Watching

The whale watching cruise 🐳? Ours could be aptly named “tail watching “ cruise. All the hype and the build up proved to be mostly for a glimpse of the back and the tail of the gigantic mammal…and of course the water jet.. I assume the passengers’ excitement was ignited by the feeling that the enormous mammal is somewhere swimming around us. ..

It wasn’t like any previous animal watching excursion I’ve been on. The last one, 2 days ago, was a bear safari in Whistler, BC , and we were quite lucky to spot one 🐻. The ranger saw him, did a U-turn and the considerate Teddy 🧸 hadn’t budged, graciously waiting for us.

We looked at him, through the glass of the Land Cruiser, and he returned the favor and then disappeared into the woods 🌲. We saw all his body parts and took a photo.

The same with the other safaris in South Africa and Sri Lanka…In the latter the leopard 🐆 eluded us during the two excursions, however we didn’t have high expectations from the beginning , it is all a matter of luck…either all of the anatomy or nothing…it’s not like this “tail only” formula !

However we “hit “ it big during the Alaska cruise 🚢 It was unplanned, the view unobstructed, and was greatly enjoyed 🐋 .

One thought on “Whale Watching”

  1. I admire all your adventures. Well worth for a book or National Geographic issue. Enjoy
