  • Whale watching can be frustrating when you keep getting distracted by all the herons, fish eagles, and rosellas (spectacular Australian parrots) flying by. Head inland from Georgia’s clifftop house for a hike up Pigeon Rock Mountain or a farm-to-table meal at St. Isidore. ⁣

  • This cozy cabin is tucked into a walled garden that dates back half a millennium. If your little one isn’t impressed, try a game of boules on your lawn or a stroll past otters and herons along the River Wye. Your favorite moments might take place after dark, though, especially if you stay up late to roast marshmallows under stars that feel only slightly smaller.

  • Originally a farmhouse dating from 1842, hosts Amanda and Chris recently renovated their historic Airbnb Plus home with the help of the @aphrochic design duo. What did they learn during the renovation? Simple swaps maximized the space, while pieces from nearby shops and artists celebrate Hudson's small town vibe.

Check out our Tips highlight to see the transformation and learn how to incorporate @aphrochic’s design tips into your own home.

  • Warmed by handmade touches and found treasures, this 1959 trailer puts just the right amount of comfort between you and the desert. After a day of hiking the Bartlett mountain trails, connect with fellow travelers over pizza from the shared outdoor wood-burning oven.

It was a Saturday night, and such a Sabbath as followed! Ex officio professors of Sabbath breaking are all whalemen. The ivory Pequod was turned into what seemed a shamble; every sailor a butcher. You would have thought we were offering up ten thousand red oxen.

I have given no small attention to that not unvexed subject, the skin of the whale. I have had controversies about it with experienced whalemen afloat, and learned naturalists ashore. My original opinion remains unchanged; but it is only an opinion.

For the strain constantly kept up by the windlass continually keeps the whale rolling over and over in the water, and as the blubber in one strip uniformly peels off along the line called the “scarf,” simultaneously cut by the spades of Starbuck and Stubb, the mates; and just as fast as it is thus peeled off, and indeed by that very act itself.

The men at the windlass then cease heaving, and for a moment or two the prodigious blood-dripping mass sways to and fro as if let down from the sky, and every one present must take good heed to dodge it when it swings, else it may box his ears and pitch him again.
