For my 38th birthday, I went whale watching with a handful of friends. Big brother Julian took this kick ass photo capturing a damn fine day. Why a whale tour?! Whales are magnificent beautiful creatures and if you've never seen them in the wild, you are missing out. It is a humbling experience to see the largest known mammal to ever exist on planet Earth (blue whales are bigger than dinosaurs) and with a worldwide population estimated at 8,000 to 14,000, we are lucky to even see one. Whale watching on one's birthday is also a great reminder, that we are only but a blip in this world.
THANK YOU everybody for a really amazing day! And big ups to Captain Dave's Dolphin and Whale Safari for making it all happen. I can't wait to go again next year!
