A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

A Whale of a Good Time

I refrained from mentioning yesterday the hump back whale I saw prior to entering the water for the triathlon. Actually it was two waves prior to mine (one was my daughters's), and I did not think anyone else saw it, plus I doubted what I thought I saw. The whale was about 50 yards behind the support kayaks, and the kayak teams were looking toward the beach. So without giving that whale more thought, I jumped right in the water once our wave horn sounded.

A few hours later, I learned more people had seen it too, along with many pods of dolphins swimming along with all the waves of colorful capped head swimmers. Thankfully, no sea creatures were seen while I did the swim portion of the race. I guess we can all share the waters.....
