the photo blog about travel, history, and business
Our next location for our Where in the World series is closer to home, with home being Atlanta, Georgia. It is a vista you can visit any time but a sight you can only see briefly on sunny days for a couple of weeks a year.
You have to stop by the right bend in the road and arrive at the right time. Can you guess what the locals call this appearance? And, where you can visit it yourself?
So, where were we in the image below? The one shared two postings ago?
We were enjoying the ultimate lunch interruption while cruising between islands of the Galapagos. Our captain spotted a nearby pod of killer whales while we were eating and quickly dispatched us in the ship's motorized pangas to follow them.
There were a dozen or so whales and a pair of sea lions in the group - teenage boy sea lions if I had to guess. They meandered through the water paying us no attention, swimming and diving and rolling around and between us for more than an hour.
Sometimes they got so close, the spray from a tail slap or a quick dive would fall into our vessels. The one below, diving next to our panga, created his own rainbow. You can see it if you look closely.
