Beautiful photo Diana & I loved to allow my mind wander there just to pretend I could  see those waves. wow!!

 

That email was a genuine paypal but a stuff up on their side. I always suspect phishing  but hovering the mouse over the address gave the same as their usual.

Glad I charged my phone battery as that call took ages. They were really busy with everyone stressed just as me. They were doing work on their system & accidentally sent off those emails.

I'm usually cool but that stressed me, Its a year since my bank a/c was hacked & I didnt want to go through that again

What a difference 1 day makes.  The sun came out and I had a nice ride in the afternoon.

""what a difference a day makes " Thats what I said to a friend  when she told me a beautiful actress was born the day after me.

 

She should be very afraid of tomorrow when she gets hit with the elderly stick.. :rofl:

This morning’s reading was 143 @ 4:30AM

 

Yesterday I went whale watching with some friends staying at my cottage.

 

What you are looking at is the most famous humpback whale in the world!
Salt and her daughter.

 

"This book is about Salt, the most famous humpback whale in the world. Salt is a female humpback whale that feeds in the cold, productive waters of the Gulf of Maine. In the summer, Salt is often seen feeding off Cape Cod, Massachusetts.'
[...]
 As of "2016 Salt had 14 children, 15 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren."

 

What makes her famous is she was the first whale that they identified through body markings.

"Much of the research used to study humpback whales utilizes a benign technique called photo-identification, or photo-ID. Here, natural body markings and features are photographed and used to create catalogs of known individuals. Individual humpbacks are then tracked over the course of a season as well as from one season to the next."

 

See the two white marks on her back? That is how they know that it is Salt.

We went to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary about 20 miles north of Provincetown and when we were nearing the sanctuary I saw a number of whale watching boats and small crafts. Overall we saw about fifteen whales including Salt and her calf.

I came across this interesting article.  This site, Hanauma Bay, is a popular destination for residents and tourists.  Amazing transformation after the place got a bit of a rest from people.

Diana I am in awe of you seeing so many whales. What a magnificent experience.

The humpbacks here  are on their return run to Antarctica .

Great story of the seals Mike. A few years ago I enjoyed  watching  a seal sitting on the rock eating a huge fish..about 2ft

This is Migaloo a white humback that migrates along the east coast

Here on the Cape seals are all over the beaches and with the seal come the sharks. The sharks are so numerous that they have spotter planes going up and down the coast looking for sharks, and they close down the beach if a shark gets too close to shore. Two years ago a swimmer was killed at a town beach
