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.

After folks get off the shuttle and head to the beach, I wonder how many take a look at the plants that line the path. The environment is harsh, pure sand, intense sunlight and salt spray. Not exactly the best environment for plant life.
We had a family reunion at the Cape this year with folks traveling from North Carolina, Maryland, Texas and New Hampshire. My cousins told me that they were renting a house with a 9-11 memorial rock garden. The owners had a connection with a victim of American Airlines Flight 11 but it was not clear who that was. I visited and took a few photos.
The Marine Mammal Protection Act was enacted on October 21, 1972. It has been a success. Years ago it was a rare to see even a single seal and now so many. Of course they also attract a few Great White Sharks. I saw plenty of Grey Seals but NO sharks.
In May the New Ipswich Photo Club chose the photo theme silhouettes. We displayed our photos at the Peterborough Camera Shop. These are a few of the ones that I chose for the exhibit.
