Beautiful animals amassing at High Head Beach (just south, or is that east, or is that west? of Provincetown – just outside of town!), which you can see on the map – we actually took a RIGHT, but there were seals to the left when you arrived on the beach as well.

took the 10:30am whale watch last Saturday morning (sorry bears, I’ll always pick whales over bears — except my sweetiepiebear, of course!), and it was just amazing to see these wonderful creatures so close to us. What I didn’t catch on my own camera, which we hope the nice professional photographer lady caught (2-4 weeks for delivery – I can’t wait!!), was an amazing full breach right off the right side of the boat. For ease of viewing, I converted the original file size of this video down from 113MB’s to 10MB’s – hope the quality is still good enough to enjoy!

I found the long line for the “chinatown bus” and got in it. Distracted by my thoughts, but able to keep pace with the slow-moving line that promised me onto a totally packed bus, I tried to keep my sighing to myself. Nearing the front, where a small asian woman was taking e-tickets, I looked to my left and saw another bus company’s much shorter line. Boston – Hyannis – Provincetown. I sighed, then the six people in that line turned towards me, and all started laughing. HAHAHA ha! You have to go back to New York, and we’re all going to P-Town. HAHAHAHAHA! ha!
Only a couple hours earlier, watching all the leathermen get off the fastferry as I waited to get on, an ambulance pulled up to the boat. Apparently someone got sick/passed out, and there would be a delay; is this a sign I should stay? I didn’t necessarily want to be part of leathermates weekend, but as these hairy smiling faces passed me going into town, I sighed. Why must I leave so soon? I biked, I beach-frolicked, bird-watched, picture-snapped, dunes-brunched, sunset-watched, chowder-slurped; in a hottub, on a bed, under a boatslip, and in the dunes there were other kinds of slurping. Head sunburned, feet blistered, crotch grabbed, butt – well, they tried, anyway. I laughed my ass off as a pair of seals appeared, swimming along the shore in the same direction as my barefoot hike, trying to snap pictures, having no problem keeping up with them until I exhausted myself and found a solitary spot up against the sand and ate the poorly planned meal i had in my backpack. And they appeared again, turning and diving, poking their faces out in my direction, and swimming off again, giving me another fit of laughter.
I was just getting started.

My favorite form of public transportation, I was at the Boston bus terminal last week and at 5:15 the Fung Wah bus must’ve had 60+ people in line for their 5:30 bus, and I was at the end of the line for Lucky Star, with only 2 people ahead of me! But, by the time we left at 5:35, 40 people! And still, I managed to hog two seats and soak up 4-1/2 hours of free WiFi for my 15 bucks. yeah! (more exclamation marks!)
