MAKE ME LAUGH

Filed under: provincetown — bj @ 8:41 AM

Remember last fall’s Hurricane Sandy? Well, 2 days before, we’re on a boat, the last whale watch of the season, and 80 minutes in I’m resigned that we won’t be seeing anything. Beautiful day, but we’ve just been traveling too far with nothing to show for it. 90 minutes in, they make an announcement. “We’ve spotted some spouts a few miles ahead, so we may be in luck!” And soon enough, they were right! Yeah! Here’s the description from the website”

“October 27th marked our last trip of the 2012 season. We traveled 18 miles offshore into very deep waters. In general, and particularly when our trips take us to the shallow Stellwagen Bank, we are rarely in more than 210 feet of water. Today, our depth sounder was telling us that we were in 600 feet! Here, we had spouts all around us. We counted between five and seven humpbacks, as well as six fin whales!”

and tonight, I get on a bus heading up north, and hope that on Saturday, on the first whale watch of the season, we have some good luck and I get some pics and video to share. Wish us luck!

…and click the pic to see the video!

not bad for a parking lot

Thanksgiving Day, 2012

This was at Herring Cove Beach, just before my sweetie and I headed over to Fanizzi’s (by the Sea for our Thanksgiving dinner. We didn’t get a table in the main dining room (Bay Room, looking over Provincetown Harbor), but the food was great, and it was nice to be around all the “townies”, and sitting across from the sweetest man I’ve ever known. Funny I left this pic in the drafts folder for so long…. who knows what else is in there!

Whale Alert!

Filed under: provincetown — bj @ 11:16 PM

This is the very last whale (humpback) picture I took on the very last Provincetown Whale Watch of 2012. but I am hearing the right whales may be returning early again this year, so I’ve been keeping my eyes on the Whale Alert App, and I’ve noticed some activity nearly every day the last two weeks!

This is from this past Wednesday. The “whale tale” icons show where the listening buoys are in the shipping lane, and the yellow indicates where the hydrophones that are mounted on the buoys specifically to detect right whales have detected them – cool!

not adjusting well to being back in NYC. Just got back from my little fall vacation in p-town. the pic above is from the first day landing there, a week ago Friday. We had literally just set our bags down, and I said, “Let’s take a walk to the Pier.” so we left the condo, crossed Commercial Street and onto Ryder towards MacMillan Pier, and there the darn thing was up high in the Provincetown Harbor sky. For some odd reason I relinquished my camera, and just ran towards the darn thing, and then saw the whale watching boat coming in. What a view that must’ve been coming into town with the rainbow overhead! anyway, expect a few more vacation slides photos as I sort through them.

seals!

Filed under: provincetown — bj @ 8:44 AM

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.

having had a fantastic weekend in Provincetown, even after leaving and riding on the speeding Fast Ferry towards Boston, I kept snapping pictures. With all the pinks, and blues, and purples, I thought I’d get something good. Alas, 30+ pictures later, all blurry! But I am wise enough never to delete anything (thanks to digital cameras and HUGE memory cards!) until I am really sure. The one above looks a bit like a painting – I only wish I could have captured how smooth and glassy the water looked; and the one below, well, I’m sure there are thousands of identical ones on facepage, flickher, and photobasket, but it’s still my pic, just as the boat was leaving the harbor, after a wonderful weekend with my baby, so I like it.
