The Kids had an extended winter break this year. 3 1/2 weeks. In most households this was met with horror. I am pathetically over attached to The Kids though, so in this household, it was met with much joy and over enthusiastic hand clapping.
Of course, that may have been just because I realized I would also be off work that entire time.
It was a great break.
We headed on down to Long Beach, CA to watch some whales.
The week before, there had been several sightings of Orcas. We didn't get quite so lucky, but we did get to see some amazing sea animals. The boat was filled with some neat people too. The lady I sat next to was from Poland, had recently relocated to Ireland, and had spent the month in California with her husband travelling up and down the coast. Seeing whales was on her Bucket List.
Our first sighting! Two whales migrating south together.
The moment we all were waiting for. Diving.
Soon, I'll introduce you to our other sea friends. There are just so many photos I want to share.
