Got Tail?

Happy 1st offical day of Fall! Woo hoo! Since I'm running around like a headless chicken super busy, I thought I'd share some whale watch photos with you today. These are from the amazing trip we took with the parents on September 13. Now I've always had good luck with whale watches, but this one was superb... we saw at least 15 different humpback whales and got to see breaching, fin slapping, lots of great tails and more! Enjoy...

Some cool tail shots...

We saw several groups during the afternoon, but this group of 4 was my favorite...

This is a mola mola, or ocean sunfish. The girl who narrated the trip said she's been on about 350 and this was only the second time she's seen one...

I snapped this scenic shot of my hometown while we were pulling back into dock...

The cool thing is I managed these pictures with my tiny little point-and-shoot digital camera and now I can't wait to go out next year with my new Digital SLR and get some even better shots!
