First, we took a whale watching tour. Typically we pass on any boat-related tour thing -- no pirate tours, no sailing tours, no sunset cruises, no dolphin/manatee/insert-water-critter-here tours. We live on a boat. We see that stuff a lot. And for free.
However, given the last couple of days had been utter concentration on dodging prop traps and we haven't seen any whales we thought this would be fun. Let someone else do the driving and we just sit back and take in the view for a change.

|My only 4 shot. A blow, a tail, and the mother and calf.|

I told Hannah we look like
crash test dummies
in the "before" shot.
Today we headed out, slowly making our way westward. Lousy weather is coming. We didn't want to leave MDI quite yet so we made our way into the Somes Sound within the island. We'll putter around here for a few days. Apparently, this is the home of the United States only fjord. We wanna see that.

Or as the locals say, "Bah Hahbah."
