on being a tourist at home

Went on a Whale Watch yesterday...a tourist in my own town! Had so much fun...

Here are a few more pictures of the trip...

My cousin and the water


The open ocean...beautiful on a very hot day.


Double tail flukes! There were three Humpback whales we followed for a bit. You can see another whale watch boat in the distance. Before seeing these humpbacks we saw two Fin Whales off the coast - they are the 2nd biggest animal in the world! Seemed odd to think they weren't that far off shore!


My dad, uncle and brother on the boat.

Fishing boats in the Harbor.


Home. I feel so lucky sometimes to live here...
