  1. The pair of whales seemed to be playing with us. They would come up next to each boat, and look at us, sometimes blowing their spout. When it was time for us to return to the ship, one of them raced us back. 

  2. A beautiful picture, David! I wish I was on that Polar Cirkle Boat that day 🙂
    Hope your are fine! Best wishes from Norway
