Salmon and Potato Salad served with New England special hotdog buns, some juicy colorful heirloom tomatoes and french fries.
East Coast summers are really short but scorching hot I am not complaining cos we just finished our quota of long freezing winter... so we are on a salad and seafood diet for the time being.
We went whale watching last weekend to Cape Cod I must say it was really a memorable one. To go to Seaworld and see trained whales performing acts is another thing but to go few hours into the sea in a small boat and see untrained ones in their natural habitat is mindblowing. The whales dived with the boat for a short distance very gracefully .Later playfully went from side to side like a happy dog and we ran around in the near-empty boat to catch the glimpses. It seems it was our lucky day there were plenty of whales close to the boat, was indeed a feast for the eyes.
Don't ask me for pics cause for the very first time I went without my camera on a trip and decided to live and enjoy the moment and not worry about taking hundreds pictures to get that one perfect picture with straightest horizon line and whale tail with dripping droplets in a rocking boat.
