Whales frolicking north and Dolphins feeding south!!!

Rox and I were enjoying our Sunday morning coffee watching the sun brighten up the waves, when we saw huge splashes directly in front of us...

We grabbed the glasses and saw Humpback whales jumping almost all the way out of the water, to fall back with terrific splashes.  As you know, counting whales is like watching submarine races, sort of difficult to see...

But...we think there were a few mamas, and several babies, all spouting and splashing...a great start to a terrific morning!

However...that's not all!  Pretty soon, we were treated to a bunch of dolphins swimming south right in front of us.  There must be lots of fish in the waters now, as there were also pelicans floating just behind the waves calmly gobbling up fish.

The clouds were right of of a renaissance painting.

Here's a shot of the beach and waves--we were too slow to catch the whales and dolphins...


Not a bad way to start a Sunday...

Hey Bob n' Rox! So nice to catch up a bit on what's been happening in your little piece of paradise. It's great that you keep all of us Northerners up to date on what life is like in Montanita. I think often of the few weeks we spent in your suite, and I always have a smile on my face when I do...

Happy Sunsets to you both and to your extended family!
