Today was a fantastic day. My friend told me about a Right whale mother and her calf off the local coast. We headed out in the car with binoculars and the camera and were very fortunate to see them. I believe there are only about 500 Right Whales in the world, so that fact that we were able to see this pair is amazing.
I get it that the whales are small in these pictures, but they are there and we saw them!!!!
I originally planned to watch a green sea turtle get released today but the sighting of the Right Whale altered our plans. It worked out well. Wahoo!
The other day we went hiking through the 12 mile swamp. The part we went through was not very swampy. It is obviously an area that was cut down and replanted. I didn’t personally find it very interesting, but Dart felt otherwise. There were enough smells to get him excited and he was very exuberant on the walk.
I don’t understand why the trees are so bent in these pictures. There were several like that throughout our walk. It doesn’t snow here and we are not on the beach.
