Seachange: Whale Tracks

Every day my husband and I awake to a panoramic view over the bay. Sometimes the ocean is calm; sometimes it is wild; always it is magical. Like the view from my childhood home, this is a scene imprinted onto my very soul, representing a season of contentment and creativity.

Migrating humpback whales cross the horizon in winter and spring. I keep binoculars next to my sewing machine, ready for my first whale sighting of the season. I admire the “whale tracks” - ever changing patterns on the surface of the water created by light, waves, and currents.
