For the last several summers at the Cape we have gone on a whale watch aboard the Dolphin Fleet out of Provincetown. We travel out to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and have always seen at least a few whales. It is just enough for me to be on the water and seeing the interplay of light, sky and water.
