What an excellent theme entry, Karen! You can't get much closer to a whale than this! #9656847

Amazing capture Karen, I went on a whale watch once, but nothing like this. #9656931

Thank you! As you can see, the small fishing boats allowed us to get right down there with the whales. Nope, you couldn't get any closer to touching and kissing them. The guides were careful to balance the boats while we were busy enjoying all of the excitement! #9662400
