Our Gray Whale
Our Gray Whale
San Ignacio Lagoon, Mexico! This gray whale spent over an hour between our two little boats, moving back and forth to play, be touched and kissed by all of us. It was an unbelievable experience.

This is my favorite - it's very well captured - great detail in the whale and wonderful expressions! Whales are so intelligent and have such amazing societies and family life - it certainly seems they are as fascinated with us and we are with them!

Thank you for visiting and leaving good words. Yes, it was a privileged adventure. We did visit the Mission, salt flats and saw six hours of landscape while driving to the lagoon.
