We barely looked away from the water the entire time we were there, hoping to see a fin!
|Well, we looked away a little, but only because the rocky shore was so interesting, as well! It's a national park, so I couldn't take any home with me, alas, but I really wanted to!|
|The kids weren't cold. I was!|
|There was a lot of trash on the beach, washed up from the ocean, so much that we were able to fill a giant plastic bag with rope and plastic bottles and randomness. I DID take a couple of pieces of interesting trash home as souvenirs!|
|I didn't recognize it until it was pointed out to me, but this is the lighthouse on the bag of Cape Cod potato chips!|
|We never did see any great white sharks, although we did see a couple of seal or sea lion heads out in the water, so sharks could have been hunting there!|
This one had to miss ballet class that day, so it's good that she got some dancing in:
|Even though I was a little chilly, I actually fell asleep here for a while.|
At the visitor center up near Provincetown, we had to watch a documentary for the children's Junior Ranger badge. Um, it was the creepiest, most depressing documentary that I have ever seen at a national park!
There's a scene where the sailors are scooping stuff out of a whale's head, and another where they're hacking things off of a whale, and I'm not even sure if it's dead yet.
But don't worry, because those sailors all die in shipwrecks, anyway.
|No shipwrecks, whales, or great white sharks to be found!|
...we know much, much, MUCH more than we maybe wanted to know about whaling.
