Mexico Adventure: Part Twelve: Whale Watching: Part B

I was done with the Mexico series, did you?


I just wanted to share some more whale watching photos because I was so excited to be so close to them.

Once again, our guide took a lot of these photos, and when I got back I enhanced them a little (straightened horizons, fixed the lighting for your better viewing) sit back
and let's continue watching the whales, shall we???

Fanning out tail! This just thrilled me!

We spotted a Mama and a Baby!

Up close and personal!:

Heads up!!

A whale in shimmering sunlight...what can be a better thing to see on a sunny afternoon?

Thar she blows!!!

I think we all yelled: "Oh WOW!!" when this happened close to us:


My favorite shot of them all:

Of course there are more pictures of them, but they are similar to these
and my prior post.

Seeing them in person, up close and personal (for the second time in my life)
was thrilling beyond belief.

One more thing I can cross off my bucket list.

But, not to worry--
My list is a LOT longer than I will ever live to fulfill.
I'm gonna die trying!!

That's a great attitude and I'm going to join you. The colour and shots are great. The last one with the light shining on the water falling from its tail is excellent.It must have been so exciting.

How thrilling to see the whales. Our family went to Nova Scotia about 10 years ago. One of the side trips was to see the whales. The trip was to be in a rubber raft thing. We slept in a motel on the island we were to launch from, but when we awoke, the curtain was actually blowing sideways into the room. I thought to myself: NO WAY. (I get sea sick.) But the whole trip was cancelled. We couldn't reschedule because they were always booked and we had other reservations for other days. So we missed out. I would want to do this in a real boat if I ever get a chance again.

The virtual whale watching has been wonderful, so to see in reality must have been amazing!

Whales are so majestic that they have a tremendous influence on you. The small beluga whales are just as awesome. Belugas are easy to spot when you fly over them because of the creamy white color.

Wow! Awesome photos!! What a treat to see a baby one also!!

loved your last lines :) When I went for my first whale watching at Puerto Piramides, we had 5 whales come up to the boat and check us out. It was incredible to be that close to something so big and gentle
