Today my daughter Denesha and I went whale watching. The water was pretty rough so I only took a few photos. Mostly I stood and watched without my camera. We saw quite a few Orcas. The American police were out patrolling keeping the whale watchers back from the whales. They are going to ruin the industry. At one time you would go up a long ways in front of the whales and shut off the boat and let them come to you. You were basically a big log on the ocean and no one got hurt. Now you must keep the boat running and if they are coming within 100 meters you have to get your boat out of there. The whales don't swim straight so there is a possibility of one getting run over. The police boats actually patrol within 100 meters of the whales. We still had a lot of fun.

On the way back we found a lone Grey whale patrolling the shores for food. We watched him surface about 5 times before we headed back in to port. I bought some fish to let Denesha feed the seals that hag out at Fisherman's Wharf. We had tried before but never got a good picture.

Tomorrow Patty and I are heading to Langford for a baby shower for Joey and Nadine. I'm hoping Ben comes along and we can take Gwen for a walk then I want to go do something fun with Ben but I won't tell him what it is. He is trying to get a job and Tim Horton's may call him in the morning so he really doesn't want to go! He may change his mind.
