    I was given a tip that the best place to go on the ship is the Bow. I guess that's the back. I'm not very nautical.

    Bow is the front and the Stern is the rear of the boat. I grew up sailing and boating. :)

    I shall be there. I got a brand new digital camera of my very own just so I could take nice pictures of the whales. :)

    A little OT lesson:

    [This is a fast-access FAQ excerpt.]

    This phrase's first meaning was "in favour, assured of success,
    in an enviable position". Some writers allege that it originated
    in allusion to Edward Joseph "Boss" Flynn (1892-1953), a campaign
    manager for the U.S. Democratic party during Franklin Delano
    Roosevelt's presidency. Flynn's machine was so successful at
    winning elections that his candidates seemed to be in office
    automatically.

    But the phrase was popularized with reference to Australian-born
    Hollywood actor Errol Flynn (1909-59), whose amorous exploits gave
    it a second meaning: "being a quick seducer". The earliest
    citation we have seen does refer to Errol Flynn (but not to
    seduction): "In like Flynn. Everything is O.K. In other words,
    the pilot is having no more trouble than Errol Flynn has in his
    cinematic feats." (1945 in American Speech Dec. 1946, 310)

    Now you know.....
    And knowing is half the battle.
    Yo Joe!

    I hope this thing isn't cancelled because of a storm or bad weather. We'll get our money back, but it would still be a shame.

    Well, weather.com says scattered showers this morning through noon. Hopefully that remains true throughout the day. :)

    We saw much more than what's in the pictures; those whales move pretty fast! :)

    I think "whaletail" is a flipper. Not sure though. It could be a fluke.
