The whales were pretty hard to miss. I think we spotted around 15 or so in the two hours we were out there.

Thomas is one of the many ranchers we met on our journey. His ranch is about 4hrs in either direction from civilization. So you can imagine his excitement to see some dirty gringos. We stopped and chatted to him and offered some common supplies like AAA batteries. He was more than grateful!
