Last Saturday, we visited historic New Bedford, MA, which made its fortune from whale oil. We spent quite a while at the wonderful New Bedford Whaling Museum. The whale skeletons hanging from the ceiling are really cool!
After the museum, we took a walk along the waterfront, where the scallop fleet was in port:
