Day 2 - Whale watching & Plimoth Plantation by Ms. Lightheart
Wow! What a great day! We started the day with a wonderful New England breakfast at Hearth and Kettle and then we sailed on the John and Sons II for a morning of whale watching. We were blessed to see the majesty of several Humpback and Minkey whales! It was quite an experience to see these endangered giants. Check out the picture of baleen, which is like a whale's teeth.
Upon returning we went straight to Plimoth Plantation. My Gosh! What a learning experience. We witnessed first hand the building of a Wampanoag Wetu (see picture) and life in a 1627 English village. Ms. Lightheart was fascinated by the rare breed chickens and goats. Tomorrow we are off to Cape Cod to learn its rich history and about the ocean's ecosystem.
