We enjoyed a beautiful stretch of weather while we were in Massachusetts. One day we drove to Gloucester for a 7 Seas whale watch tour.
While driving through town, we stopped at the Mariner's Memorial honoring 3,500 Gloucester sailors who died at sea.
The whales are staying far out at the feeding grounds (32 miles from port). It took about 2.5 hours before the first whale was spotted. By the end of the day we had seen 30 different humpbacks, including mothers and calves.
The new masthead on our blog is a reminder of this trip.
