Dolphin LO

San Diego Whale/Dolphin Watch! More details below. Thanks for looking!

These are more pics from CA; Whale/Dolphin watch. It was so amazing to watch the dolphins play on the side of the ship! I felt like they put on a show just for me!!! When I 1st saw them, they weren't that close. I really wanted them to come closer & by the time I blinked a gray/white one jumped up right beside the ship! My camera was in my hand, but I forgot to push the button. It was like 5 of them jumping, twirling, & talking. By the time I remembered to snap the pic, he was going back in the water. I'm so glad I got a couple of pictures. My dad's wife was able to get the on video. Thanks for looking.

Baby Whale Blow LO

On Christmas Eve, my dad, Wanda & I went to watch the whales & dolphins out on the Pacific Ocean. It was 3 hours of peacefulness; so relaxing! When we first got on the ship, our coats weren't on, but by the time the ship started moving, they were on. About 30 minutes later, we had on hats, gloves and scarves. Although it was extremely cold, Wanda & I stayed out on the tip of the ship the majority of the time (alone w/a guy from Ireland)! We saw all of the seals up close & watched the dolphins play/swim on the side of the ship. It was amazing. We kept trying to get pictures of them playing, but they are so fast. I did manage to get 2, 1 of the jumping back in the water & the other is just his shadow under the water. Now for the whales, we only saw the blow of a baby whale. The instructor on the ship said it was a young baby who was more than likely separated from his mom. We saw him attempting to get his tail/fin out of the water, but he couldn't get it out of the water. We did see him do some blows. God's creations are wonderful!!!

Christmas '09 Layout

It has been a couple of months since I posted anything here! I've been really busy & I'm praying I'll have more time to create things this year, because I enjoy it and it relaxes me. (smile)
I spent Christmas in San Diego with my father and his wife. We had a lot of fun and it was a much needed vacation! I took about 150+ pictures. It may take me a while to scrap them but it's my plan to try. Here are two LO's I did yesterday and today. Over on the Cricut MB in the Layout thread, they have a challenge where you have a week to complete the given sketch. It was a lot of fun getting back into scrapping!
