Starting something new on the blog today, a Photo Tuesday feature. Each Tuesday we’ll highlight an amazing photo from our adventure. As always, our entire photo collection is visible on flickr and our most recent photos are presented on the photo tab.
This photo was taken day 2 of our trip, less than 24 hours after crossing the border into Mexico. Half way down the Baja penninsula, we stopped at a small town called Guerrero Negro to “visit” with the grey whales. After a choppy ride out in miserable weather, we waited in the lagoon for what seemed like forever before the whales approached us. This mother and calf stayed near our boat for several minutes, playfully swimming from side to side and nudging the boat. It was an amazing way to start our journey south.
