Here’s another post I’ve been meaning to do since early August.
Cousins Sian and Jay came up from the Seattle area in the first week of August They stayed for a week and I enjoyed having them here. Mostly we did short trips around the valley and spent some time with my family here in the area.
However, we did make the 3+ hour drive to Telegraph cove one day. Here’s a map to give those of you overseas and idea of where we went.
The object of the trip was to board a vessel owned by Stubbs Island Whale Watching and go in search of marine life. We hoped to see orcas, humpbacks, dolphins etc and we weren’t disappointed. We gathered together on the dock to get a team picture before we left. Even the skipper squeaked into the shot! (Back left)
The surface was flat calm which suited Sian nicely.
Soon we were all absorbed in scanning the surface for whales. We failed to spot orcas but saw three humpbacks feeding together in one spot.
The whale watching trip was a great success.
Soon, the week was over and it was time for Sian and Jay to leave. However, we did manage to end it well with a family night out for dinner.
That’s all folks. ‘Bye for now and God bless.
