Way too hot today￼￼ so had to escape and go whale watching! Within the inlet saw a Great Egret flying and he landed under a bridge. Perfect to get pictures! Then the Great Blue Herons were on a little island of land. By now, the temperature dropped so this was great. Out the inlet and onto the ocean looking for mammals and other sea life. The water was so beautiful and calm: looked so blue reflecting the cloudless sky. Headed east and then northeast. As we were by Seabright and approaching the Highlands, there was a spout. Found a whale. Well, actually 2 whales but they were not together but in different directions. Stayed with the first one that we saw and he was active. Although when he dove we never saw his tail, he was active! Soon after we found him, he lunged above the water. Other times he may have been lunging but under water because you could see the baitfish going crazy and then the whale would surface right beyond the baitball as if he lunge through them below. He definitely had some huge lunges and everyone on the boat enjoyed that! Meanwhile the other whale who had been active seemed to disappear. That was okay, stayed with this whale and then it was time to head home. Saw some cow nosed rays both on the way out and back in. Celebrated many birthdays today! Wonderful way to celebrate!
