Going on a whale hunt...

A friend told me there's a grey whale near the marina and that we don't have to pay a gazillion dollars to go on a whale watching tour.  I have yet to meet a whale, and I've always wanted to, so tomorrow...

We're going on a whale hunt.
Going on a whale hunt.
But we're not afraid.
No, we're not afraid.

Actually, James and I tried once already to see it.  We had a babysitter in, and drove down to the marina, but the fog came in.  Couldn't spot a grey whale in the fog.  We listened hard for a while, but didn't have patience to wait for long. Plus, it was a little creepy.  We couldn't see five feet ahead of us, and the bells were clanging on the boats. AND, there were horror movie scenes playing through my we toddled off to the pub.

But tomorrow, it will be me and the boys, and hopefully a whale.  No fog, fingers crossed.  We have staying power, don't we boys?

Oh, have FUN!! We went on one about 5 years ago, the week I found out I was pregnant with Samantha. Hahaha, I always think about that whale trip in terms of how I was pregnant but didn't know yet until 2 or 3 days later.
Anyway, we did see a whale and tons of dolphins, and it was awesome!! So amazing to see that huge creature coming so close to the boats, just to visit. They're quite social. I hope you get to see one!
