whales on sunday...

boro grey whale no.8

beluga no. 3

northern right whale no.2

narwhal no.3

i had big plans to line up all the whales for a group shot at the beach today. they all seemed quite jovial on this sunny sunday, and i thought they'd be happy to play along and pose together. the wind, however, had other ideas. even with A as my whale wrangler, we had troubles getting shots of just one whale at a time, as large gusts kept spiralling in and trying to send these swimmers flying back to the sea. the northwest wind was boss of the show, and also responsible for the beautiful blue skies, but we did manage to do a little photoshoot with all of the new whales. they are available in the shop now, eight whales in total: two narwhals, two belugas, two greys and two right whales.

i think i could have spent much of the afternoon at the beach, but i had promised some folks i would get back and update the shop early on. still we took a short walk along the sand and it was gorgeous, even as the wind cut right through our layers. we even caught a bit of low tide drama - will share tomorrow. i'm hoping the sun will hang around for another good walk tomorrow, maybe with a bit less of a gale behind it.

i hope your weekend was a good one - are you like me and critiquing red carpet fashion right now?

It was a beautiful but windy day. Your whales are lovely. I cannot decide which one I like more. The beluga, the narwhal, all of them.

i would much rather see you whales and creatures by the seashore than watch starlets in dresses the cost of which could feed a village for a year.

Stunning! Just stunning! If I didn't have bills to pay, I'd buy them all.
