Not Whale Watching

We went to Lime Kiln Point State Park to watch whales.
I guess nobody told the whales though, because they never showed up.

It was a gray, overcast day and the wind was blowing a bit,
but we stayed to walk along the beach and peek in the tide pools.
Where we saw quite a few NOT whales:

This was most certainly a NOT Whale.

An entire congregation of NOT whales:

Sea Anemones & Escargot

A high and dry NOT whale:

And a good time was had by all
(except possibly the snail that was being eaten by the Sea Anemone).

    • Cherie — I don’t really see the resemblance, but then I was there to see the crab in person and watch it scuttle sideways.

  1. The whales saw you from far and hid ! that’s the only explanation.
    I got a nervous breakdown when I saw your “escargot” (didn’t know that this word is used in English, because it’s the french word for snail) After the thousand snails who had invaded my garden, I can’t look at one anymore !

    • Gattina — In America we use words from all sorts of languages. In the case of “escargot” we are generally referring to food snails.

  2. WOW! That was a LOT of not whales you got to see! I wonder if our next photo hunt could be for not whales…. hmmm….

    You know… NOW I know why they say crabs are related to the spider family. When you shrink them down that small, they really DO look like spiders!

  3. Just realized that I missed Punny Monday! Don’t think I got my reminder, but I might have and just lost it in the fog of how I am at the moment.

    I’m sorry you didn’t see any whales, but still it must be lovely to be out on the water and see smaller wonders of the world. I enjoy seeing all the wonders you get to see in your corner of the world.

    • Raven — I was busy with my company and didn’t send out the Punny Monday emails. As it is, I did Punny Monday itse’f with only seconds to spare.

  4. Does Amoeba know anyone who can tap into that whale radio thingie they have? I used to have a buddy who could call someone to tell him where the whales were…wonder if it’s still in operation.
    Love the pics, makes me want to jump on a ferry…oh wait…I have a job…fooey!

    • Shelly, afterward, I saw a sticker that said where to tune for whale news. I didn’t bother to try and remember though. We head home early Friday morning and I still have all the boxes I picked up from storage to sort and repack. I’m too busy for play now.

    • Thumbelina — we weren’t frustrated at all. We knew when we went there was a good chance there’d be no whales. We just had a fun beach outing.

    • Susan — they are the best NOT whales ever, I think! Tell me more about this children’s book. I’ll give you creative consultant credit and a mention in the dedication! 😉
