The Privateer IV is docked in Gloucester, Massachusetts, one of the oldest seaports in the country. It is a high speed vessel, owned by 7 Seas Whale Watch and, every summer, visitors flock to it's decks to travel out into the open waters in hopes of meeting majestic creatures of the sea. Oftentimes, the boat heads for Jeffreys Ledge on the northern end of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. "It's a very biologically rich area and it's been recognized that it is an important feeding area for different species of whales," said naturalist Jay Frontierro, who has worked for 7 Seas for 22 years. "Remember, this is a nature trip, so we're never sure what we're going to get," smiled Frontierro, noting that Humpbacks, Finbacks and Minke whales are the most common mammals to spy off the coast of the north shore during the warm weather. But, "we sometimes see sharks," he added.

Outdoor spaces get more attention this time of year as we venture outside during those long, warm days and evenings.
And who doesn't like to watch nature's dance as a humming bird or butterfly flit by?
