british columbia: day 1

it was nice to wake up in CANADA on WHALE WATCHING DAY!

we got to the place a little early so we hung out in a coffee shop until it was time to head to the boat. we cut it pretty close getting to the boat on time, but managed to get there with a few minutes to spare. even still, everyone was waiting on us. oops!

right when we left the dock, we saw a bald eagle perched on a branch. it was like it was seeing us off. how thoughtful! the trip to the whales took over an hour, but it was so worth it! the day we were out there three pods (J,K, & L pods) converged into one superpod! there were over 80 whales all around us just getting their whale on. among the whales, was “Granny,” who is estimated to be 103 years old. The whole experience was incredible!

 FYI nothing really happens until the 1:00 mark.
