Here are a few photos that I took yesterday
|A raft of eider ducks, there were more here, all I could get in|
|Black guillemots in their winter plumage|
|Bonaparte's gull showing characteristic white leading edge of the wing|
On the other trip we did yesterday we did was a chartered trip with a group of international students. We spent time off Spruce Island in Head Harbour Passage with a minke whale and we also saw lots of porpoise and both harbour and grey seals.
|One harbour porpoise, the one on the bottom is a reflection|
|Check out the characteristic surfacing of the minke whale!|
Now for an update on the Quoddy Link herself, we have a mechanic coming down tomorrow (with the parts) and hopefully the boat will be up and running with TWO engines by tomorrow or Tuesday at the very latest!
Thanks you everyone for checking in and thanks to everyone for your patience over the last week with our boat troubles,
