Aaaah, all excited...Wendy and Judy are taking me 'Whale Watching" at Moss landing and I've never been whale watching before.
So....I was advised to take a dramamine pill beforehand to help prevent motion sickness...
swallowed the pill and off we went..boarding our boat 'The Sanctuary' (all I could think of was "Logans Run" the sci-fi movie where life ends at 30 as Logan and his friend Jessica attempt to run to Sanctuary !!!....)
and would I ever make it back !
The mate on the ship advised that we also wear motion sickness bracelets...hell.....I thought "Why Not"...at $7 a pop for the rental of these stunning accessories I figured if it keeps me from feeling quesy it'll be worth whatever they're asking !!
pill and bracelet intact...off we go...that's me and Judy
faaaaahbulous....I'm doing great...I see all sorts of marine life..
the boat is going nice and slow...
I see this guy with his $6,000 300mm lens and I think...'show off'..you just wait till the boat starts really moving...how you gonna hold that thing still??
and then....oh, about 2 1/2 hours into the trip, I see this poor gal with her head hanging over the railing on the ship
who knew I'd be joining her a few minutes later !!!
Forget the pills, forget the bracelets...go to Plan 'B'
when it got choppy the weak don't survive!! I don't know about the guy with the big lens, but I threw my guts up twice
and then..I FELT WAAAAAY BETTER !!! and guess what...I wasn't the only one....
felt better just in time to catch some wonderful whales
Too difficult to predict when they'd surface so most of the memories are in my head and not on film, but, it really was a wonderful day. The skipper and Gilligan had a grand time too !
and then we came home
and I napped for four hours !!!!!!
THE END !!!!
