Saturday we went on a whale watch for my mom's birthday. It was a blast!! Really, any time I get the opportunity to be on the water - I go for it! The beauty of the sky and sea meeting; the smell of ocean air - it is fan.freaking.tastic!!
The whale watch was being run by the Boston Aquarium, so as we waited to board, I got to snap a picture of this playful little seal. :-)
After a mostly rainy, cool week - it made being on the water during a warm, sunny day even better! Here's a picture of Castle Island as we left Boston's Inner Harbor.
The seas were calm (in my opinion), only 3 foot swells and no white caps. However, not everyone shared the opinion. If I didn't know better, I would have sworn by the screams that there was a roller coaster hidden on the ship! I couldn't help but giggle at the land-lubbers. AMATEURS! heeheehee
We managed to see TONS of whales! Three different species!
However, my camera crapped out on me - AGAIN! The first time, was during JC's boot camp graduation. Then it's been acting funny for a few weeks. It decided to stop working again during the whale watch. Grr! Anyone have a camera recommendation? It's becoming glaringly obvious that it's time to buy a new one....
