at our cabin in dark cove (on the south shore of the bay of islands) we often see minke whales. they're the smallest whales (about 30 feet in length). they're usually far out in the bay and we watch them with binoculars. but sometimes they're in close to shore and we can see their colours glinting in the sunlight as they breach and dive. i once took a boat trip to harbour deep in white bay (an outport that has now been left behind). from the boat, on either side, we watched humpback whales. sometimes 3 or 4 at a time would be visible. this yarn is about humpback whales. it's what their song would look like if we could see it.
