"Bridled" Common Murre. Only a few Common Murres make Machias Seal Island their home, and I only found one Common Murre with these white spectacles. Photo by Marianne Balkwill
After I spent an hour in the blind it was time to go look for Aaron and see how he was coping. Artic Terns called overhead and I found Aaron hanging out at the lighthouse visiting with the lighthouse keepers.
Back on the dory, and back to the Days Catch we went. Our next stop was a little island that had both Gray and Harbour Seals. I watched, while Aaron raised his head to take a quick look and then it was back to hanging over the railing. An hour and a half later we were back on Grand Manan. I thanked the Captain and Mate Durlan for an excellent time and Aaron was thankful to be back on dry land again.
That night in our motel room the two of us chit chatted. Our trip was about over. Tomorrow we would take the ferry back to mainland New Brunswick, and then back to Ontario.
