The good and bad of my day

Just two more days to work in my five day stretch. Thank Goodness !!

Yesterday was a very difficult day to get through, as I was feeling really puny all day. The night before I woke up around 3am, with a bad stomach ache and I was dry heaving, YUK!

I had to go to work as there was no one to cover for me, BUT, the the huge moment of the day was to see three or four Orcas about 200 yards out from the front of the spa. They were obviously heading for warmer waters to spend their winter months, perhaps around Hawaii. The orcas entertained us for a couple of hours before moving on.

This is the view through the double glass doors, from where I sit at my desk

Later in the day, as I walked past the double glass doors leading into the spa, a seal popped his head up out of the water, about 25 feet away, and looked at me as I stood frozen to the spot. We checked each other out for a few minutes before he gently submerged and went about his business.

I arrived home around 7pm made a couple of pieces of toast and a pot of tea, and after consuming my light supper went to bed. I am happy to report I am feeling much better today.

How wonderful is that! Watching Orcas and having a chance meeting with a seal all in the course of a day. :-)

How wonderful to have nature constantly surprise you like that. Sorry you had to work when you weren't feeling well, but look at what you'd have missed.
