We visited the Visitor Center first, to decide what we should do and where we should go. We started quite late in the day, so many things were closing by the time we arrived. We walked along the cobblestone streets, looking at all the old buildings. While we were walking we worked on our 95th Junior Ranger Program. Because we started so late in the day we had to mail our Ranger books back to the Visitor Center.
It was a short visit, but we learned a lot about whales and the whaling industry in the small town of New Bedford.
