Tuesday morning, after a short night of sleep, we drove to the ferry terminal, arriving a little after 6 a.m., for the 7 o’clock ferry.
We had a plan. Everyone except Mary and I was going to bundle up to go out on deck, watching the sun rise, and observing the beautiful view. After the bus was parked, we headed up several floors to the passenger area. It was a cold, brisk morning, but the family enjoyed their time out on the deck while Mary and I stayed inside the passenger areas to keep warm and explore.
In the meantime, after exploring the inside for a bit, Mary and I looked for a place to sit with a view out the side. We decided to try to find a place near the front for a better view, so at Christopher’s suggestion, we purchased something from the cafe and found a wonderful area to sit.
Part way through our ride, we saw “something” we were hoping to see, “something” that was even mentioned we might see as a blog comment.
ALL of the family saw them! It was an incredible few moments of seeing God’s amazing creatures.
“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:21).
