Thursday was Whale Watching Day

We got on a really big, really fast boat and sat up front. Doing 45 knots, we went 25 miles out into the ocean to this little lighthouse island operated by the U.S. Fishing and Wildlife Service. This is where the Puffins are nesting and preparing to lay their eggs. From there we went off to some spots to find whales. We spotted three Humpback Whales and got a good show from one of them. We were on the ocean for about 4 1/2 hours. Thank god for the galley in the main cabin.

Thanks for taking the time to share your trip with us. It's the next best thing to being in the car with you. We enjoyed all of the beautiful photos. We don't know when you will pick up on this comment, but you might want to consider coming back through the States. The waits at the border crossings have been sometimes running two to three hours. Love you all. -- Clarice and Steve
