Last week was not such a great week for politicians and sea creatures. First, Governor Dannel Malloy and Mystic Aquarium and Sea Research Foundation President and CEO Stephan Coan were photobombed by the beluga whale at Mystic Aquarium. The governor was visiting the aquarium to speak about summer tourism, and it’s hard to tell if the beluga whale, Juno, was that interested in what these guys had to say, or just wanted to get in on the photo opportunity. The same day, President Obama had a salmon spawn on his shoes while visiting Alaska. Yup.

I had on my running paws this past Saturday, but the vast crowd at the Hartford Marathon intimidated me. So I stayed on the sidelines. My ears perked up during the blessing of the runners before the start of the 26.2-mile race, though, when I thought I heard a familiar voice. That made me scramble up the nearest tree to look over the mob, to the steps of the State Capital, where I saw Newtown Congregational Church minister Reverend Matt Crebbin offering words of thanks and inspiration.
