Saturday July 31, 2010

Another sunny, calm day on the waters of Jordan Basin.

Last night we were fortunate enough to encounter a pod of approximately 20 pilot whales as they passed by the Hudson, including two of this years calves. A highlight of the day for all (along with the pizza for supper). Yesterday we also sighted the fins of a small shark, trying to get some of the greater sheerwaters surrounding the boat, along with several whales in the distance, and a few sunfish basking near the surface.
