The Whales so NO to migration and YES to Food, Sex, and Rock and Roll!!!

So...you figure that the stint in the US has finally pushed ol' Bob over the edge, when he makes up a title like he did for this entry...

Here's the story...

We had coffee and brunch on the deck this morning, and as we watched out to sea, we kept seeing whale spouts...pretty normal for this time of year...Then we realized that the spouts were moving south sometimes and then back north...OK, so no migration--just foolin' around...We counted as many as a dozen spouts all at once, so we figure the pod is over twenty!

Then we see about 30 fishing boats out in front of us on a SUNDAY!  This has never happened in the four years we have been watching...hence, there are a ton of fish to be caught today.  AND, the whales know it!  They know a good thing when they see it--why travel, when the food is all right here!

The sex and Rock and Roll are all rolled into one.  These giant mammals are cavorting by dancing on their tails high out of the water, and also slapping their massive tails on the water.  This DANCE is purely to enhance their sexuality (and it could be likened to rock and roll...)

So...let's hear it once more for food, sex,  and rock and roll!!!

And, if you think we are happy to be back, you've got it just right!
