Re: Whales!

Very cool. We've seen a Right Whale around here as well. Cool to see but it does conjure up images of the whale getting too close, or are we too close? Only in America could I be accused of harassing a whale that is bigger than me and the boat combined.

It's a big deal to protect them around here. There are flights squadrons that go looking for them, ocean monitors, etc. Must be all the guilt from the significant industry in New England that essentially wiped them out in the 1800s.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
