Thought that I may have captured a decent sunrise
along the way, but no luck there.
The day was not looking too promising.

I eventually arrived at a sparsely populated

a whale under the text on the photo.
The person on the right is at the foot of
the whale watching platform.
I drove home happy with my day out,
even though I heard that there had been eleven whales
visible the day before.
