Woke up early one morning  to look for whales in the sea off St Lucia. The cold current had come north early this year. Joined the trip just along the main street . Hopped into a pick-up truck and headed down to the beach , from where we caught the boat – straight off, just like that, helped on its way by a tractor .
The sea was a bit rough,  made photography a little tricky, and the swell  made some people on the top deck feel a little unwell. But, Hey! We saw some Humped back whales.  Sometimes we saw one , sometimes we saw two , some were spouting , though only one flicked its tail flukes  while another waved its flipper  to say ‘hello’.
Landing was dead easy, just ploughed up the sandy beach  and hopped off the boat, then watched the tractor pull it further up out of the waves. While waiting for the pick-up truck we saw a few birds , including a kite. Then back to St Lucia .
