Seeing the Whales
I have been terribly negligent about blogging and I apologize for that. Just been a little busy. :) Last week Carl had some vacation time in between semesters so we took full advantage and did some day outings. One was a trip to Cape Ann in Gloucester, MA where we took a whale watching tour (thanks to Groupon). It was great!! We had been looking forward to it and Will couldn't wait to "Go see the whales!". The trip proved to live up to the hype and we were able to observe a group of 4 humpback whales traveling together (apparently not a pod...we learned that humpbacks don't travel in pods together, but rather pick up friends temporarily along their travels). Additionally, there was one loner humpback that we were also able to stalk. The last video shows them showing their tails and the first video shows them swimming by. You can hear Will saying "Yay, whales!" at the end. He loved it, as did we. :)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
