Whale watch pt. 2. Me teeth part 2, and a very wet 4th for us.

Yes it's going to rain muchly on the 4th so the Boston Pops concert and fireworks will be on the 3rd. If I was a loony I could hang around work after my shift ends at noon on Friday and wait a mere 9 hours and watch the fireworks just up the road a piece as I work just the other side of the Charles River. It would be a very good spot to watch from. Fortunately I am not that much of a loony and should be grateful that I am "outta there" at noon. I have been to one Boston Pops 4th concert back in the '70s. Due to very bad planning we never got anywhere near enough to really hear the music though we had a good spot for the fireworks.

I had a preliminary look at my dental issues. So far I have just taken one baby step with two more to follow. Then we get down to the nitty gritty. I can certainly think of many other things to be doing than what I may be doing over the next several months but what must be done must be done.

The Whale watch was a lot of fun. I would do it again someday. It wasn't always easy to get a good shot because you never knew where a whale would surface. Following the seagulls were a good indicator. You would see a burst of  small bubbles that turned the water a very light green and then the whale would breech the surface soon after. It could be anywhere around the boat. I luckily did get 3 shots of a whales head but I didn't know it until later.
  There were a lot of pictures. I gathered a good amount and made a slideshow. I am not totally pleased with the way it turned out but then again it's just a bunch of pictures. I set it to music. It isn't nautical in any way. It's two tunes by Eric Clapton. The guy who became my guitar idol in 1967. He's one of the '60s rock stars who, after a tumultuous life, has managed to age gracefully. I went through a time in the70's and 80's when I tuned him out until Live Aid in 1985. He can still play a mean guitar in his 70's.
Okeydokey. I gotta move on.
I'm outta here.


  1. Gorgeous photos again Paul and the video is awesome. I will be back later today to watch it again.
    Thanks for being such a great friend Paul!!

  2. I know about those bubbles in water....LOL! Sorry about the teeth, not fun. Great video! Have a safe 4th!

  3. Blessings and happy fourth...
    once again i gloss over the teeth thing....phobia in full effect.
    have a blessed weekend.

  4. I finally got back to watch the video in full screen. I really like that song in the second half of the video. Who is singing it? I know it is an old song but I can't remember who sang it.
    Happy 4th!!!

  5. Thanks Paul! I would love to have that song!

  6. Boston Boy, I loved the slide show. I probably would have cried when I saw the I often do when I see something for the first time in person. When I was a kid, I wanted to see and do so much...and my universe was the corner of Cleveland and Mill in Tipton, Indiana. So when I saw the Golden Gate bridge I cried and the Statue of Liberty, the U.S.S. Constitution, the White House, the fields of Gettysburg, and Arlington Cemetery. I remember the burning desire to see the things that we only read about or saw on TV. So seeing certain things just makes me emotional. LOL. Hope you have a great week. I am praying for you and your dental work...that stuff makes me crazy. xoxo,Susie
