Good morning everyone. Well I may not be good about writing blogs regularly these days but at least I am slow. I don‚Äôt know if that makes any sense to you folks but my life has been a bit like a runaway train these last few weeks. The train has slowed temporarily. We are out on our annual naturalist/photography cruise this week with JimDugan.com and naturalist Eric Snyder. We sailed out to Seal I on Monday to see the plentiful pelagic birds nesting there; puffins, auks, murres and even what we are fairly certain was a Manx shearwater. Eric and I both did a big double take when we saw that fly by. By some stroke of luck we anchored here at Lunt Harbor, Frenchboro, Long Island yesterday afternoon. We will most definitely get to shore to visit the boulder beaches and remember what it is like to see the bay from the land.
If you haven‚Äôt made your reservations yet there are still a few empty bunks this summer. We just had a cabin open up for the Great Schooner Race. Yes, that is next week. I know this is short notice but if you don‚Äôt think too long and hard about it you might just find yourself witnessing one of the greatest spectacles since they put a man on the moon and have a great time to boot. Oh yeah, and did you receive the latest installment of our e-newsletter? The puffin shot in the header is mine. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
