1. A nature news flash from Michelle and Butch.

 

They left Peaks Island for a long sail the last of August and here is what they saw:

"We saw a 4 Atlantic White-sided Dolphin pod with a baby - jumping beside its mother -  at the mouth of Hussey Sound just as they were leaving Peaks behind.  I was surprised to see them so close to land but it was a great sendoff to our sail."

 

"We saw quite a few gannets fishing when we were sailing about 8 miles from the mainland plus several Atlantic white-sided dolphin pods when out there also."
