On Sunday I ventured south towards the coast and conquered something off my life list, to see a puffin in the wild. Have you ever seen a puffin? I took the Hardy Boat cruise and spent majority of the time looking through binoculars and exclaiming "oh my its so cute!" as I stared at puffins and my boyfriend tried to take photographs for me. I recommend bringing binoculars and a good telephoto lens if venturing out. We did see a variety of birds and I loved the fact that people from the Maine Audubon were aboard to point out different birds. We also visited the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and Fort William Henry while in the area. The weather was nice but very warm.
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse
Loved the cool designs on the rock from years of the water hitting it.
me and Peter by the lighthouse
Fort William Henry
OMG Puffin!! I spent the whole time staring through binoculars while Peter tried to snap photos for me. Next time I will get my hands on a telephoto lens.
Eastern Egg Rock - It was loud from all the birds.
Yup I was happy as a clam after the cruise!
