... and along the way, we learned from fellow campers that there were whales swimming in the ocean. Sure enough, we could see the pods - what an unexpected gift! Caroline and Catherine made a salad and spaghetti dinner for us. It was awesome. We decided to let the kids watch a DVD in the living room. They picked "Rio", which we had brought with us. By the time we went to bed, it was 11pm. Everyone was exhausted.
