Welcome back! Great day in St. John’s (again!) Today was our day for Bay Bulls. After touring in the gift shop we were ready for the “real” tour. The captain told us that we had come at exactly mid-season this year and the whales were plentiful as were the puffins, murres, gulls, razorbills and more on Gull Island and Green Island by the thousands!
Lanny’s Sou’Wester stole the show early this morning but within the first 20 minutes of being on board “The Atlantic Puffin”, we were treated to something I’ve never seen happen – a humpback whale breach!!! This was so very impressive! I had almost given up hope of seeing one live…let alone capturing for all you nice people following along on the blog:
And while the whales are impressive in their own right, the birds of Gull Island were amazing too!
Join us tomorrow when you’ll see that I still have a couple of surprises up my sleeve!! TTFN!
