A Whale Of A Day

Our whale-watching boat got "mugged" today by a curious whale. Mugging is the term used when a whale comes close to your boat to check ya out. Do you see what I see?

The water is so very blue, and the whale looks pretty big!!

Wonderful picture! We got "mugged" on the whalewatching trip we took when we were there about 10 years ago. It's amazing when they get that close!

I wonder how I feel, if I saw the whale just near like it.

The whale must either be curious or simply desensitized to the boats in the area.

Great catch.
