I just couldn't pass this one up. Our blog silence may have been an indication of our busy, erratic lifestyle, but all work and no play makes Julius a dull boy.
We're in Pacifica, CA, just 10-15 minutes south of San Francisco. I'll give more background next time, for those of you who are not from the Bay Area or the US. One of the nicest things here - other than having a fantastic view of the great Pacific Ocean - is regular sightings of the ocean's giant inhabitants: Whales!
I saw them through my window. The second I realized what they were, a surge of excitement rushed through me. My first reaction of course, was to grab the camera. :)
It was great seeing something so out-of-the-ordinary. I've forgotten how such occurrences can inspire me and bring zest to my "ordinary" day. The big lesson is, they're always there... I just don't notice them.
Some things in life do not have to be phenomenal in order to be special.
