Waiting for Whales – Hermanus, South Africa

There is something about whales that I find amazing. The only opportunity I’ve had to see them in person is when I traveled to Antarctica in 2009. So, it was a delight to see a Southern Right Whale just off the shores of Hermanus, South Africa¬†on my trip last month.

I imagine if I lived in or near Hermanus, my butt print would permanently be etched on one or more of these rocks.

Wait for it…

Sometimes nature just takes my breath away.

I will never forget watching whales in Sook, British Columbia. We were in a small Zodiac. After seeing these mangestic creatures in the wild, I decided I never want to go to Sea World and other places that keep them in captivity!


I know exactly what you mean, Bonnie. I would have loved to go out in a zodiac this trip but the ocean was too rough. They are so playful and curious. It’s amazing.
