Mel’s sidenotes: Love is …

… taking care of a really seasick Rheinland dryland whale. That would be me…

I owed Colin a whale watching tour from way back when I lived close to Boston for a few months. So when I learned that Newport has a resident gray whale pod just offshore, I booked us on a whale watching tour today. I do get motion sickness easily, so I took my tablets in time. We headed out to sea and guess what – just when we stopped to watch whales and the boat started rolling with the swells, I added to the plankton and fed a few fish with breakfast donuts. Thar she blows…

Very embarassing, as I got stuff over me (darn wind) and another tourist. I wasn’t the only person getting seasick, but still… And despite at least two grey whales were showing us their flukes relatively close to the boat, Colin just took supergood care of me.

Ask him about it, he’s an expert on dryland whale care. Just throw the words “Valentin’s Day” and “Battlefield Park” at him and watch for his reaction.
