I liked reading through your journal. Very descriptive, meaningful, and very colorful accounts of beautiful days. God bless ya! littlelight
Nice travelogue. I especially enjoyed the portion about the whales: "Our first sighting was a lone sleek black whale. Our guide remarked that they are twenty to thirty feet long (considered small) and are related the porpoise. We came close enough to watch it sew the water – rise and dip - and listen to it breathing. Long hours later, a dozen whales swam towards us. Their glossy black bodies moved with the graceful undulating rhythm of waves. When they came alongside and slipped under the boat, we could hear and see them blowing a fine spray as they surfaced."

I related to the ending. I always end up throwing away the paper stuff and keeping the memories.

Thanks for the taste of someplace I'll probably never get to. Interesting read.
Your entry really underscores the value of journaling!

Wonderfully evocative journal entry. Very useful, not only as a reminder of a holiday, but for future writing. Particularly liked the image of the whales 'sewing' never heard it described that way before.
