Its A Whale

Its not so often we hear that call on board, but Ley was pretty excited and she called it out REALLY LOUD. This occured just yesterday, on the passage from Langkawi to Penang. Sure enough, in amongst the fishing fleet, she got a good look at the creature. Reference to our whale books suggests it was a Goosebeak Whale, with a surprising spotted brown colouring. The whale sounded several times in our view, and slowly moved away from the fleet (and from us). This one wasn't so big (about 6 metres), but its great to see them, and nice to know they're surviving.
