A Whale of a Tale


Last year 'E' and I went on a trip up just north of where she lives in NJ...she mentioned that we would be going along the ocean and that she missed the boat the year before...yeah, she missed it alright...

The Whale watching boats do not go out late October due to cold weather and well...no whales, they all head over to warmer waters so their babies can grow after fattening up on food while they were here...


Here is off the coast of Cap Cod... We got lucky because the weather this year was warmer for a longer period of time, and the boat captain said the mothers wanted their babies to eat more to make that long trip down south and over to the various island regions...

We got lucky, one of the young ones had fun showing off for my camera!

That was a great trip and we love traveling together...I have a good laugh at her all the time...while reloading my camera, and changing some lenses I looked up and what did I see, 'E' was flat up against the front outside window like a bird just drop her out of mid-air, and she went splat...everyone was laughing so hard in the cabin...and that is no whale tale either...

PhotoNuts, you take the most amazing pictures. I am so jealous. Do you do food photography as well? I'm sure they would be superb.

I love it when they wave the tail back and forth--you have gotten such good pictures!!!

My mom and I have about 25+ pictures of rippling water...and lots of great stories ;)
