On Saturday, I took my mother and kids whale watching. The weather was cool and it started to drizzle when we arrived, but cleared up when we got out onto the water.
There were 5 people in our group on this 3 hour excursion, so of course the Gilligan’s Island theme song kept bouncing around in my head. Luckily, our ship was not so tiny and the only thing that got “tossed” were a few people’s cookies. The woman in the photo above must have decided it would be best to just sleep it off.
Overall, we saw hundreds of birds, dozens of dolphins, a bunch of sea lions, 3 gray whales and half a boat full of green humans. It was quite an adventure. And a lesson was learned. Even if you don’t typically suffer from motion sickness, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared and bring along some Dramamine when you go out on a boat.
