Today I watched the Humpback Whales in Outer Cove, almost all of them were getting as close to the cliffs as I’ve seen them get in a long time. One of the smaller Humpbacks even appeared to hugging the cliffs, kissing the rocks for minutes at a time. Perhaps it was scratching an itch, or maybe it was just scraping some salty snacks from the wall, who knows…

I realize it’s hard to see the whales in this photo so I added the arrows to aid the eye. Here’s a close-up from the exact same shot:
