Opening Day For Cape Ann Whale Watch

Hi Joey & happy Thursday!

Just wanted to send a quick email along to get Gloucester excited for our upcoming season! There have been reports from the Boston boats that Humpbacks are already off Stellwagen Bank and we couldn’t be more excited to get our season going! We start up April 17th, but with the limited capacity restrictions, that date is already sold out! Best thing to do is check our website for our full schedule with available dates. We begin going daily May 1st.

This is definitely a sure sign of summer coming!

The Bird Population Doesn’t Disappoint — pat morss

Recent activity on daily walks. Our family of 9 turkeys appears to have finally broken up for mating.

A Song Sparrow lives up to its name
Half a squirrel is better than no squirrel
Throw it around
You have something for me?
Lunch at Niles Pond
Thank you
She’s avoiding me. Or is she my sister?
The local clans are mixing; this female is on the Audubon rocks
And this male is in a mating mood

Carry-on Suitcase

I haven’t flown since last January. We flew to LA for six days. We were organizing our basement the other day and I found a piece of luggage that I formerly used as my “carry-on” when I don’t travel with checked bags. It occurred to me that I almost always check luggage. It also occurred to me that my once-was-carry-on looks kind of big. So I compared it to a “newer model” of carry-on. True….several inches higher. Sigh. When did the acceptable size for carry-ons change? And where have I been…..other than I guess not flying….or flying with really big bags?

A Visit to Rafe’s Chasm

We hadn’t taken the walk out to Rafe’s Chasm in a while. A beautiful afternoon encouraged us to return to this beautiful spot for a little reflection time. It’s a short walk from the small parking lot and the path is nicely cleared. There didn’t happen to be anybody else right there on the rocks with us, but several teens were exploring the area near the chasm. One even belted out a Disney song ( A Whole New World, if memory serves.) which echoed off the rocks in a beautiful way bringing a smile to my face. Welcome spring!
