Today was one of those “over the top days” that I will remember for the rest of my life. We left the marina with the water like glass and light fog hanging on the water – it was beautiful. As the sun warmed the earth the wind came up and we sailed with just the jib and a following current at 10+ knots. Then we started to see whales. The belugas started to surface…..all around us! We cut the engine and coasted and waited then they came! They literally circled our boat. I think the yellow dinghy made them wonder what it was we were because they came near the boat surfaced and looked. I had eye contact with one of them as they looked right at me. I will never forget it. The rest of the day was awesome but pale compared to those moments of awe.
We pulled in at Tadoussac which is the start of the Fjiord. We needed some human fuel and went to the local constabulary where the local french artists offered us an evening of creative song writing. We went back to the boat and talked about how awesome a day we had. Pinch me……..
