I just received a Facebook invite to attend the going away party for Mack, the harp seal who was injured and rescued by the Seacoast Science Center’s Marine Mammal Rescue team on Valentine's Day in New Hampshire. He is going home, back to Hampton Beach, where he will hopefully find his family, grow fat and happy, and find love. We want all good things for Mack, who has already lived a hard-knock life. Mack has spent the last month doing some serious rehab at National Marine Life Center in Bourne, Massachusetts.

Everyone is invited to Mack's release party this Sunday at 5:15 p.m. No need to RSVP. Just show up at the Sea Shell Stage, by the Lady of the Sea NH Marine Memorial at Hampton Beach.

Let's send Mack off to sea with lots of love!
