We finally had some beautiful weather and were invited to go down the coast with some friends. The ocean was calm and wonderful.
For most of our trip the driver was a five year old. He did a great job and managed to keep us a float!
We had many visitors to the boat including these cute little fellas. We were able to keep our friend from hunting them so we could enjoy the company. They were so curious they came right up to the boat.
After the seals we stopped on some islands to look for seagull eggs. Yes, we eat seagull eggs here. They are good and are about the same size as a duck egg.
The seagulls nest on cliffs like this.
You climb way up on the cliff and hunt for the eggs.
We found one!!
After seagull eggs we picked a couple of sacks of herring eggs on sea kelp.
Then we hiked up to the top of some cliffs. We did not see a bear but we did find a fox.
Here is the whole crew.
Then on the way home we met another friend. If you look close you will see a fin there under the cliff. That is a minke whale. It visited us a lot closer but I could not get a better picture.
Here is a drawing of this beautiful whale from http://marinebio.org/species.asp?id=230.
Just a great trip on the ocean!
