It’s mod November the wind is really whistling outside tonight whale watching season is over for us. The Return of Covid 19 to New Jersey right before the holidays has me saying We are done with group trips till spring.i have time to reflect on our best trip of the year and the best trip of our full 3 years running whale watching tours.
here it is seeing the North Atlantic Right Whale. Yet the whales were easy to miss, low black hummocks among low black waves. Right whales don’t plunge forward, arcing and diving; they plug along the surface, back and forth in boustrophedon style, then vanish for long periods. Watching people watch for whales without the patience for their subtle presence, and with genuine disappointment that they weren’t more showy and exciting, made the shore feel like a dividing line between utterly different worlds.
I have video I need to edit from this trip I will do it this week.
