They love attention:
Just an amazing day. The conditions were perfect--bright, cloudless day with very flat water out on the Cape. The Family Spew (my parents, siblings, nieces, nephew and Mrs. Spew) joined me on a whale watching boat. I have whale watched a few times, but nothing like this: we only saw humpback whales... but we saw many. They didn't mind the boat and the calves liked to roll over and show us pretty much everything.
With the vacation barely underway, I can already declare success. Oh, and APSA, that paper is going to miss the August 4th deadline.
