RYE, NEW HAMPSHIRE
By the beginning of August, my boyfriend and I decided that we were in need of a mini getaway. We booked a fairly inexpensive hotel in Manchester, NH. We checked out the local grub at cute little local cafés, then went on an absolutely fantastic whale watch out of Rye Harbor with Granite State Whale Watch.
I had never been on a whale watch so I was ecstatic, screeching like a little kid every time I caught even a glimpse of a whale. We saw a minke whale and two fin whales, all of which stayed by our boat to give us a good show. This company does a fabulous job, making sure to educate their guests about these magnificent creatures all while being both professional and fun. One of the women who worked there even gave me a whale poster which she said I can use in my future classroom… SO sweet!I can honestly say that it doesn’t get much cooler than watching the second largest animal in the world swim alongside your boat, nor does it get much better than spending a weekend spoiled by this guy! I’m a lucky gal.
