I really wanted to share my recent experience of going on my first whale watch while celebrating my mother's 70th birthday! What a beautiful day it was! The skies were so blue and the temperature for the day was just right.
My mom has lived on Cape Cod for over 20 years and has never been on a whale watch. Totally can scratch that off her bucket list! My sister Jess, my brother James and I knew it would be a great way to spend her 70th birthday. She seemed a bit anxious getting on the boat but once she saw her first whale we were pretty sure this was her best birthday ever!
We couldn't have picked a more perfect day for the Whale Watch out of Provincetown. My sister Jessica, her daughter Molly and I had never been on a whale watch either, so to say the least it was an amazing experience. We saw 17 Humpback whales, an Atlantic Dolphin and a Fin Whale. Wow. I am no National Geographic photographer and the anticipation of when the whales would come to the surface was beyond challenging. I was able to capture their beauty the way I saw it and totally encourage everyone to do this at least once in their lives. These whales are absolutely majestic to watch and you will walk away from the experience having a new found outlook on how beautiful our earth and oceans are.
