Whale catches Boat Anchor

Hello everyone - I'm currently in Nyack NY for Thanksgiving - had a great evening last night with new friends Ron and Alex, who will be joining we cruisers out here in about another year. Seems they have this 'job' thing to finish up first!
We had a fabulous prime rib dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant - it ranks right up there with the t-bone I had with Paul in Windsor a while back. 
Ron was worried about what comments I might make today, especially about a 'cute' comment Alex made....but we'll let Alex off the hook on this one since she's such a sweetie! Mind you, a blushing sweetie as she reads this...
Gorgeous day today, sunny and in the mid 50s - not quite suntanning weather, but nice. I may head for Manasquan tomorrow, since Saturday is not looking good for travel. Go figure, I'm about to head out on the Atlantic and this perfectly lovely weather disappears. What's with that? This entire trip, all the way from the Great Lakes, has been a trial.
Found a fascinating video from one of my forums today - a whale caught the anchor line of a powerboat, and the video and blog make for a fascinating tale. Here's the video below


...and here's a link to the blog itself, which finishes off the story: http://tinyurl.com/cxpfm9a
