The Island is lousy with Humpback Whales right now. Here is one lunging yesterday at high noon off a crowded beach. Poor Humpback. Nobody noticed. The few folks who stopped to ask what I was taking pictures of said "A Whale? No, there are no whales here. I've been com in' here my whole life and never seen a whale."

Whale watching is not for the impatient though. It takes a little effort to track them in between surfacing. But it is worth it.
Whale watching is not for the impatient. It takes a little effort to track them in between surfacing, and most people give up before the whale surfaces a second time. But it sure is worth the effort. With the beautiful West Wind and a Sea loaded with enormous pods of Bunker, the Whales are going nuts out there. It’s a great time to start looking if you’re interested in having an experience you will remember for the rest of your life, and probably mention to others in casual beach conversation a thousand times over in the future.
