A Whale of a Time

A travel blog entry by bollinger_babe on Nov 18, 2014

We were awoken this morning by the sound of the captain’s voice coming over the tannoy, saying he was going to deviate slightly from his planned route, because there were reports of lots of migrating whales, who were in search of the herring shoals.
