Sunday, February 27, 2017 We
enjoyed another very good seal watch on Friday, featuring the most
seals we have seen this year and lots of
friendly seal seekers to share in the fun.
watching is a bit more questionable affair with high winds in the
forecast. However, the wind direction is favorable, so we expect that
there will be seals hauled out starting around 10:00am, but if the wind
kicks up too hard,
good seal observation opportunity may be relatively brief. As
always, arriving a couple of hours before low tide provides the best
observations of active seals, we plan to visit Rome Point to see what's
up late this morning.
conditions through the woods are good now, and we will be out and about with a spotting
scope to share and lots of seal info for anyone who cares to join us on the Rome Point shore.
