If I was
like seriously that's not ever going to happen ever canoeing out on the ocean waves and this sight popped up so near me you wouldn't see my paddles they'd be spinning so speedily in the opposite direction. Below also :)
The mother Southern Right Whale and her calf slowly making their way down from the warmer waters off the Kimberly's to rest for awhile and thrill onlookers along the coast of WA before heading down to the Antarctic to feed. Diver Bill took these shots from the same place that I took the shots here..a much more overcast kind of day. Whales are a bit like children, only a lot bigger :) when you want them to perform sometimes they refuse, but just a glimpse can be a beautiful experience.
This is too close below.. no really it is for the canoeist anyway. The guidelines state that 100mt is the closest you can get and with a mother and calf situation why would you even try to get so close! I was hoping for a breach or two :) maybe next time, merci beaucoup for the pics Bill. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe... P.s. A whale-watching trip is on the cards!
