Heading out to Gull Island





(click through to see large)

On top, the boat I took out to Gull Island, the largest of four islands that make up Witless Bay Ecological Preserve, from nearby Bay Bulls. Further down, some of the rocky coastline, including a couple of pillars of rock that the waves long ago carved away from the shore... one of them itself is a nesting place for hundreds of birds. The waves also gouged huge caves in these coasts which, buried in shadow, did not clearly come out in any photos I took. In the bottom photo, we're rounding the point of Bull's Bay; in the distance, Gull Island, the largest puffin colony in North America. More to come...

For those of you who are new to this series, click on the label below, and you'll see it uninterrupted by other posts. Plenty of beautiful images...
