Whales in the Rain

Every day and every season is different! This season so far has been cold and windy. On some days, we add fog and rain. These conditions have kept the AirCam on the ground for almost two weeks. Yet, we have sightings. On Thursday, 4 February, we had mother # 3123 and her first calf (see below). On Tuesday, 9 February, we had a mother and calf, possibly #3123, in Ormond, and probably another pair just south of Hammock Dunes. The whales are around! We are hanging on as best we can, awaiting a stretch of good weather--when we hope for "light winds and heavy whales."
