... and Canadians. Next thing I know, we were being led down to the boat with a camera crew following us and filming us getting in the boat. It all happened so fast that I didn't get a picture. Later on I found out that we were the first boat going out to whale watch on the first day of the whale watching season. It was as if they rounded up the whitest, most foreign looking people to put in front of the camera. As we headed toward the island ...

It was then a long walk back up the steep hill to have ...
