Whale Watching - Pics

When we were in Cape Cod we went on a whale watching trip from Provincetown, MA. I hadn't been on a whale watching trip probably in over a decade so I was really excited to go out on a little boat ride and I was hoping that we would see some whales.

We caught the 12:30 boat and it took us about an hour to get out to where the whales were. Humpback whales are the most common whales out in this area - but we did see on Minke too! Overall we saw 25 different whales - I was so excited! They were feeding and we literally got to see them do everything you would hope to see a whale do. They are such graceful creatures.

Now that I have my sister's old computer (I bought it from her today - woot!) I can download pics from my camera - so I've added 3 to this particular post. The first picture is of the whale feeding, they come up like that as they take in all the fish and then empty all the water out! It was pretty cool to watch.
I've also added pictures to my Staten Island Ferry blog - so if you want to check them out you can click on that entry! And now that I know how to do this - look for more pics in the future to grace this blog.

I'm so jealous - I LOVE whale watching. There's supposedly some good whale watching in SD during January but we'll see if it beats MA whale watching.
