The whale did this for like 5+ min. The Captain said he did it to tell other whales to go away from him and his friend. But Jessica and I think he was telling the boat to go away. And some old grandma next to Jessica thinks that it's because him and the other whale were homosexuals. Oh the mysteries of whales.
During the very begining of the whale watching time (not on video), a whale poped up RIGHT next to us, even closer to than the one in this video, and it scared the crap out of everyone. Jessica and Penny were right next to the blow hole.
So I found a steal of a deal on whale watching tickets online ($20 as opposed to $45 each), so when frugality and coolness combine, romance happens. So I suprised Jessica with a little going away trip since she'll being going to Southern California next week. I was imagining seeing a few whales far off in the distance, but it was way cooler than we were expecting. The whales were super close, and there were like 20 of them. Humpbacks. Penny was a little grumpy and the 4 hour trip was actually more like 6. Pictures don't so it justice, so I'm going to post some videos, right now...
And we went to the beach a lot. Wingersheek beach north of Boston is out favorite. So pretty, it looks like a tropical island... except that the water is a lot colder.
