This past week we were able to go on vacation! It’s been quite a while since we have had a vacation and with how busy things have been this was much needed. We traveled to the Coast and stayed in Puerto Lopez. This is the main area where the humpback whales come to mate and have their babies. We took a boat ride to see the whales and also to Isla de la Plata which is also called the “The Poor Man’s Galapagos”. There you can see many of the same birds as you can on the Galapagos. We had a great time! I wish I could take credit for the picture of the whale jumping. I can’ t though, but it is the closest picture I could find of what the whales we saw looked like. Our boat was right beside a family of 3 whales. The babies are very curious and jump like this one. We were so close that we could almost touch them! It was SO amazing!
We are so thankful for this time that we had together to be together as a family and relax and have fun and just…be.
