7 Seas Whale Watch
As many as 15 species of whales populate the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The mission of 7 Seas Whale Watch is to bring passengers within eyeshot of these enormous sea creatures as they thrash about, breaking the water’s surface with their enormous heft and diving gracefully back below.”

The shark finally did manage to get away but not after the seagull messed around with it for about 20 minutes.
Herb Wennerberg reminds everyone that the Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner is Thursday, May 8th, from 4 to 8pm at Cruiseport.
Herb submits this funny video from last year’s event, with footage of uninvited guest Homie, who not only eats someone else’s soup, he makes a terrible mess, and tries to take the pretty bowl with him! My goodness Homie, such bad manners!

Variations in usage
In an early use of the term “homie”, Ella Mae Morse, a white singer, in the original 1946 version of the song “House of Blue Lights” asks, “What’s that homie?” to Freddie Slack, the writer of the song.
In 1992, the Latino rap hip hop group called A Lighter Shade of Brown released the recording “Homies” on their Hip Hop Locos album, which describes what a homie is in the Latino community. The status of “homie” is similar to “my best friend” or “someone I can trust”, as in, “This is my homie Alex, we’ve known each other since grade school”, or “I won’t be around this afternoon, but you can give the money to my homie James, and he’ll give it to me later.”

Because I lived on The Fort for six years, I’ve seen a few gulls in my day. Depending on the species, gulls have up to four plumage types as they mature, plus they change from breeding plumage to winter plumage as adults.
This causes many people to throw up their hands is discuss when trying to identify the birds they are seeing. I even get comments from seasoned birders and twitchers that they get confused. With this in mind, I have posted many gull tips over the past few years in hopes that it will help those of us on Cape Ann and also the many, many birders that come here in the winter to find them. Gloucester has some pretty cool birds here in the winter that many inlanders just don’t get to see.
I hope that this information is helpful!
