Whale Watching in Antarctica

A little more than ten years ago my sister and I went on a cruise to Antarctica. Tonight I decided to share some of the whale watching pictures that my sister took.

I had some good memories while looking at these pictures tonight as I really enjoyed spending time with my sister on the cruise.
