From Naturalist Laura:

It was a breezy morning in Gloucester, but as we moved into the afternoon it turned out to be beautiful weather for the start of Memorial Day weekend.  We had a very pleasant trip on the Miss Cape Ann today.  We had two humpback whales traveling together on the northwest corner of Stellwagen Bank.  One of the whales, known as Geometry, was regularly fluking for us, so we got great photo-identification shots of the underside of his tail.  The other animal was not cooperating as nicely, so I’m going to have to work a little harder to figure out exactly who Geometry’s companion was.  All in all, the whales made our job pretty easy today (it’s always enjoyable).  Hopefully, as we officially kick off the summer this weekend, this is a sign of things to come for 2015.
