In the Company of Whales with Cape Ann Whale Watch

Thatcher, Finn, and I went on a Whale Watch with Cape Ann Whale Watch a few days ago. It has been a few years since I have been on an official whale watch out of Cape Ann….as opposed to chancing upon them on our own boat or with friends or their boat….and I was so excited to go.  With lots of health and safety Covid protocol in place, we felt like we had the necessary elbow room and were very comfortable and ready for a day on the water.  Cape Ann Whale Watch has lessened the number of passengers they take on each trip, they remind guests frequently that masks must be worn while walking around the boat and while viewing the whales, and they were constantly cleaning and sanitizing during our trip.  We saw six or seven individual humpbacks and were pleasantly surprised that a couple were comfortable enough to come very close to the Hurricane as we sat in neutral being sure to respect the boundaries that are heavily enforced while in the whales’ grounds.   If you have yet to go on a whale watch….and have never been in the company of whales…you are truly missing out.

Summer is not over…..the whales are not gone….be sure to reach out to Cape Ann Whale Watch and book you trip now!


Pet of the Week- Pearl

Hi, my name is Pearl. I am an independent lady who enjoys the quieter side of life. I do love to be pet gently and get chin scratches, especially on my own terms. My ideal person would be someone who can respect my boundaries and is able to speak “cat language” – someone who can tell when I may not want to cuddle and would rather nap, for example. I may take a bit to warm up in a new environment, but if you take it slow, I am sure to be a great companion. One more thing you should know about me is that I am not the easiest patient at the vet, and may need to be sedated for things like routine exams because I get so stressed. This is definitely something your vet should have experience with and can be discussed before you even bring me in, so don’t worry too much. My ideal home would be one where I can be your one and only furry friend. If you are ready to open your home to a sweet soul, please send in an application so that we can meet on video. I am sure to be grateful for a safe loving home!
