We were underway before lunch and headed off shore for Mt Desert Rock. This was our first trip out there this season. The "rock" is 13 miles from Frenchboro or about 18 miles from Southwest Harbor. Folks haven't been seeing many whales this year. Some fear over fishing has taken away the food source that has drawn them in years past to this place where a great upwelling of water is created by an offshore shelf the rises hundreds of feet from the ocean floor. Puffins were seen everywhere as soon as we cleared Frenchboro and we saw too many to count.
Have a great day. Do well. Be good.
