of course, i also posted this picture as i had posted it on facebook. i let whoever look at my pictures. i realize this opens me up to the negatives that can happen in life. a friend of a friend posted a comment on this one. the conversation between the friend and i had been about her wanting details so she could go on this trip one day. her friend responded in what i thought was kinda a snotty tone. some people just must feel that whatever they do is better than what others do rather than being happy for others and excited for themselves at the same time.
she said she'd looked into point adolphus and that they hadn't guaranteed whale sightings so she was going to beardslee islands, inferring that these were the better choice. i have heard of the beardslee's and may want to return and check them out one day.
it's just people like that who make me avoid those adventure groups. everything is such a competition for some people.
in truth it's nearly impossible to guarantee wild animal sightings. most places won't do it if you really try to pin them down. i mean the whales are free to wander the big ocean. that is the joy of seeing wildlife in the wild, but also the risk. on our trip we saw more whales before we got to point adolphus than after we got there. on the ferry ride in we could see over to point adolphus and could see many spouts over there. wilderness isn 't a zoo, the animals aren't caged.
since our ferry arrived first we got settled into our rooms at the B&B. we chose blue heron as we'd heard great things about it. turned out to be a wonderful place. our hostess was fabulous and did everything in her power to make sure we had the most amazing vacation ever. it's so cool when people love what they do and where they live. excitement is contagious. the owner, deb, kept a stockpile of coats, bikes, boots...you name it. after bob, tanya and scott arrived we looked through the gear. she arranged for 4 of us to take a nature cruise out to glacier bay the next day. we had the day and it seemed wrong to miss the opportunity.
