Thursday morning, a stunning sight greeted us on the horizon. The Grand Banks fishing schooner, Roseway, was in full sail! Built in 1925, she was quite the sight to be seen nearly 100 years later on a beautiful day in the Gulf of Maine! Learn more about Roseway here!

On our way home, we passed by a minke whale and an ocean sunfish!
Thursday afternoon, more humpback whales moved into the area. Ravine was the first to be seen!
But then we found a pair of females, Clipper and Dash Dot! These two were coordinating their dives and taking fairly short dives!
Another pair of humpback whales was seen just to the east and another single to the west. Time was running out so we had to begin our trek home.
Friday morning, we found Ravine once again by herself. When we first arrived, she tail-breached! Then she busied herself with some feeding on the bottom. How do we know this? At one point, she happened to be directly below us where our "fish finder" was marking not only the fish, but also the whale! Super cool!!
|Two separate marks of Ravine- the left arc is her swimming toward the bottom, and the right blur with the arc is her in a patch of fish right at the bottom!|
