Route - Week 2, Day 2
From Dave's Log: Mostly clear, no fog at 6 am. Spotted 2 eagles and a great blue heron. Two loons swam by, close to the boat. Lobstermen working the pots in the cove early this morning. After breakfast we sailed to Matinicus Rock for bird watching. The Coast Guard buoy that you can tie up to when not in use was missing, so we lowered the sails for better visibility and slowly circled the island. Spectacular views of the puffins (bird list later). A thunderstorm passed over us on the way back to Matinicus Island. Thunder, and lightening near the boat as we made our way to pick up a mooring in the harbor.
