A whale of a reunion
The crew of a whaleboat from the historic whaleship Charles W. Morgan rows toward a feeding humpback whale on the waters of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary off Cape Cod, Mass., on Friday. The Morgan, the last remaining wooden whaling ship and the oldest American commercial vessel still in existence as well as a National Historic Landmark, will sail out today and Sunday onto the sanctuary, which is a popular whale-watching destination.
