Do what excites you

I had a once in a lifetime moment with J34 Doublestuf this morning. Out on a boat, we were parked watching foraging whales off False Bay. Doublestuf had been down on a long dive, when all of a sudden I noticed a fluke print about 50 yards off the bow. A moment later he came into view, streaking towards us underwater. He went along the whole side of the boat on his side, maybe looking up at us? He was also turning his head, so maybe seeing a salmon under the boat? In my 14 years of watching whales up here, I can count on one hand the number of moments I’ve had like this. Absolutely unreal.
