      ... windows we roamed the shoreline in hopes of seeing some whale blowhole spray. Maybe it a blessing in disguise that the windows shattered as we enjoyed much more than some spraying water. The whales put on quite a performance for us jumping above the surface many times. We saw and heard many tails slapping the wavy surface. It was quite shocking how loud the sound was when the air and water burst from ...

      ... 2 hours late!! *******s.

      On to Buffalo Bay I went – a lovely lodge on the beach where you could sit on the dunes and watch the sunset.
