Rolling swells break on a small island where gray seals raise their family; this had to be a painting.
In January I made reservations with Captain Andy’s to go out in mid July to Machias Seal Island (about 10 miles of the coast of Maine and New Brunswick) to see the puffins. We were lucky with the weather and we not only saw the puffins but we got a little boat tour of an outer island, where gray seals hang out. I so enjoyed watching from the boat while the huge combers rolled into the rocky shore, and the gray seals were there! A big male was watching over his family.
Gray seals are suited to the deep, cold water, and can dive hundreds of feet deep in cold water to catch the fish they thrive on.
