Puffins .. and more

For an early birthday present (we won't say which number) and after we hiked 68 miles on the Appalachian Trail, Princess took Warren on his first-ever visit to Maine. There were many highlights, but one of the best was surely a visit to Machias Seal Island and a chance for a close-up look at Atlantic Puffins just feet away!

Machias Seal Island is claimed by both Canada and the US, but maintained by Canada's wildlife service. Limited numbers of visitors are allowed each year, and the lucky few get to virtually mingle with the Puffins and other birds while hiding in blinds:

More soon on our Maine and Massachusetts adventure. Bye for now...
