Tonight after dinner I suggested we go out and have a after dinner coffee at our local seaside cafe, I took the camera with me anticipating a stunning sunset, and it was. It is a long time since I have watched the sun set, it did my soul good to be still, watching the silent departure of our glorious Sun for another day. As I was sitting there enjoying the silence watching the golden orb sinking lower I thought to myself how lovely it would be to see a dolphin playing in the waves enjoying the last moments of sunshine, and then promptly went back to enjoying the view.
Well low and behold what did I see a few moments later, a dolphin? No, a pod of whales, amazing and totally awesome, unfortunately my camera does not have sufficient zoom to have capture them as they were rising out of the water. How privileged I felt to witness such a sight, the sheer size of these majestic giants was utterly astonishing. I am not certain how many was in the group, they were breaching in groups of two and four.
It was certainly a case of ask and you shall receive!
