Picture Heavy Post Ahead!
Back in August (sorry for all the posts about a couple of months ago, but I love to share photos!) when I went to Battle Harbour, we flew over some interesting sights. Because our plane had to pick up some people in St. Anthony, we flew to Mary’s Harbour from there, which made for more exciting scenery.
First we flew over some communities (nobody lives there anymore):
But that wasn’t all we saw.
Wow! Seeing a whale from the plane! Imagine that.
Then we landed in Mary’s Harbour and boarded a boat that would take us to Battle Harbour. Oh, the air was lovely and to see all the islands and the water, it was wonderful.
But I didn’t actually think we’d see what we saw next.
Oh, there were whales!! And much more close up than from the plane. We didn’t even need our binoculars, really.
There were so many of them! Everybody on the boat had a great view of the whales. We were surrounded!
The whales were really just as pleased as us.
They’d surface, we’d gasp and cheer and get excited.
Crazy, hey?! Wow. I’ve been on whale watching tours, but nothing has been as spectacular as that ferry ride from Mary’s Harbour to Battle Harbour. It was the perfect start to our stay.
On the way back, we saw a few too, but it was like they knew we were sad to go and they didn’t give us a show.
