American Pipit - Cape Spear
Within seconds the first whale showed itself. Then, I began to see them everywhere. At any given time there were about ten in my view. The question was where to look. They were in every direction and they were showing their tail, flapping the water with their fins and there was the occasional breach.
I did make it back to the Cape on the Tuesday but the sun was out, it was warm and the whales were frolicking all around and very close to shore, too. How could I leave that display to hunt for the pipits? Why haven't I been back? Well, it is called Rain, Drizzle and Fog mixed with high winds! If these relentless conditions ever pass, I will return.
