Blue Whales

Page and I went Whale Watching off of Long Beach on Tuesday. First time we ever did something like this and we had a great time. We saw a few blue whales, including a Mom and her calf. I tried to take pictures, but couldn't see through the lens, so I just aimed and clicked.

Blue Whales are the larges animal on earth and largest ever in history, including bigger than any of the dinosaurs that roamed the earth.

It was wonderful watching these creatures dive and come back up

We ran into a school of dolphin too but none of the pictures turned out. Here you can see shadows of them under the water. It was a nursery pod and there were hundreds of babies. The adults were teaching them how to jump. It was another treat to see.

And of course we saw som Harbor Seals. The guide said seals are more like cats- loners and quiet. Sea Lions, which we saw later, are more like dogs. They make lots of noise are very social
