A Maine Summer...

Posting compliments of my pal Jackson Hughes.

Living on the coast of Maine is great during the summer time. The weather is always between 60 and 80 degrees, and the cold misty air from the Atlantic can cool you off just right during any hot summer day. Because of this, my favorite thing to do in Maine during the summer is go whale watching.

Whale watching is a sight to behold. The salty breeze that the ocean gives off while boating creates a perfect atmosphere for seeing these mighty creatures. They slowly bob up from the ocean depths, as if saying hello. They’re massive, and sometimes even scary, but that’s what makes the trips so fun.

Seeing a creature that's so misunderstood and underrated, that's 3 times the size of your boat, will send enjoyable chills up your spine. Every experience I've spent seeing these whales has always been amazing and worth it. When I'm not whale watching, I'm usually watching shows about ocean creatures on I can never get enough of their beauty and enormity.

If you ever have the chance to go whale watching, or even visit the coast of Maine, I would highly advise that you take it up. It will probably be one of the best experiences of your life for years to come.


  1. Jacks, when Pop retired he moved to Maine. The summers I spent there were some of the happiest of my life. Thanks for the memories.

  2. I want to go whale watching. Must I go all the way to Maine?

  3. It's been a long time since I've been whale watching, maybe something I should do again, soon.


Hey! I'm glad you stopped by to visit. I encourage you to leave a comment, I live for comments. Most bloggers do. Humor me. Please!
