We saw two Orcas splashing about a little way away from us on the coast which was so cool for about 30 minutes and then- and I'm not even exaggerating - they dove under the water for a while and we thought they may have moved on so Hazel started calling out " Come here whaleeeeeee" and one of them popped out of the water 15 feet from our boat! Whale Whisperer!
While we were on Vancouver Island, we met up with one of our oldest friends Brad who took us out to see some of his favourite spots. Ladies of Victoria, my friend Brad is officially the island's most eligible bachelor! He was the best! When he picked us up he had planned cool activities that he thought Hazel would like and took us to the Sea Wall to see the sights and to Beacon Hill Park which has the coolest volunteer-run petting zoo; The Beacon Hill CHildren's Farm where you can hang out with baby goats, pigs, miniature horses and lots of other hilarious creatures.
