A few posts ago I shared with you a few vacation photos of my trip to New England. I thought today I’d share with you a few from our whale watching trip in Gloucester, MA. Trust me, it’s one of the most unique experiences I’ve had! These creatures are mysterious, shy, but have a playful spirit. Nature truly is a beautiful thing and so was the weather we had that day. It was perfect for going out on a boat and enjoying the waves and sunshine.
We went on the whale watching tour with Seven Seas Whale Watch Group (check out the Groupon for a good deal!) The tour was over 4 hours long and we went out into the Atlantic to see if we could spot a few whales in their natural habitat. We got really lucky and saw over 10 Humpbacks, 8 Minke whales, and 50 dolphins! They surfaced close to our boat and exhaled through their little blow holes.
My sister and I had a difficult time standing while the ship was in motion. We held onto each other for dear life while my mom took this picture.
I was smart that day and wore Sperry Top-Sider duck shoes. They’re lined with fleece and super cute to wear with jeans for a day outside! I found mine at Belk back in March for $29.99. Here’s some similar ones to get you going in the right direction. Unfortunately, they aren’t as cheap as the ones I bought, but as per usual, you have to wait for them to go on clearance in order to get a good deal.
The rest of my outfit I tailored to the weather I might encounter. The thing about September is that one day its 85 degrees and the next it’s 65 degrees. You never know what to expect. I chose my favorite Lucky Brand jeans in Charlie Skinny (best jeans I’ve ever bought). A Vineyard Vines half-zip pullover and a Ralph Lauren baseball hat. Preppy and practical- just how I like things.
Anyone who might be interested in going on a trip like this I recommend wearing layers! At some points in the trip it was really chilly and at others I felt like I was burning up. Luckily, layering is a fashion statement so you can still look great while sailing on the high seas.
