A strong wind is blowing from the west-southwest today, Monday, October 19. Nevertheless, I have the pleasure of observing a minke whale breach more than fifteen times off the Tadoussac dunes. Beauty at its purest, not to mention the backdrop of autumn foliage.
The weather has been far from mild this year in the latter half of October. The waves are visibly growing stronger with the rising tide and snowflakes are falling from the sky. But I enjoy every moment like this one.
A picture is worth a thousand words; here are several photos from this afternoon…facing into the wind.
