Today we decided to go whale watching on the northeastern corner of Nova Scotia in a very small town, Pleasant Bay. As everyone knows, no one can guarantee see a whale as they are not on a schedule. We drove about 2 1/2 hours, we boarded a zodiac raft and motored out of the bay into the Atlantic Ocean. We had not been there but a short time and saw a pod of about 12-15 pilot whales. They quickly began swimming all around us and playing with each other. It was amazing to see these huge whales, usually about 20 feet long, dive in, swim and play around our raft. It actually is very exciting. We also had the opportunity to view several gray seals, also swimming and looking at us, probably wondering if we have nothing better to do.
