A Wonderful Surprise!

We decided to head for the beach this morning. The sun was out, the wind was nonexistent (a rarity for the Oregon Coast) so a nice walk on the beach sounded great. We just get down to where the surf line is when what to our amazement a whole pod of whales is putting on a show just beyond the breakers. We stood mesmerized for almost 2 hours watching them spout and turn in the water. I wasn't able to see them through the camera, but by zooming into where they were and then watching above the camera for the spouts, I was able to get about 6 fairly good pics. At least you can actually see the whales in them. Not sure what kind of whales they were, but we think maybe, sperm whales.

The digital layout was created with the new Club Scrap kit Versailles, with some Castaway and Milestones thrown into the mix. It was quite a spectacular day.
