50ft off the starboard side!" I moved like a shot, grabbed my camera and
raced to the 01 deck. We finally saw some whales, almost up close and
personal. They appeared to be humpbacks. I think I got some decent shots,
although it is quite difficult to shoot a moving target. It appeared as if
they were playing or something. I think there were about 5 of them.
Anyway, pretty cool!
We are heading south again on the 150 deg W line. More icebergs and bergie
bits are visible now. The sight of ice really improves one's mood,
especially after all you have seen in a while is gray skies.
