Ralph and Larain Matheson saw four whales spout south of Cook’s Beach just before New Years. Larain said, "It looked like a fountain that kept spouting – quite a show.” Ralph’s photo shows you the bushy spout of a Gray Whale. If you could see it straight on, you would see it is heart-shaped.
And below is a photo of the glistening Pacific Ocean, sparkling as if it were sprinkled with diamonds.
Thanks to Ralph for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
