Touring The Seal Community Near My Home In Maine

On yesterday's blog I asked if you knew the largest and second largest islands off the east coast of America. A few of you took a shot at it, but only two - Tarp Sanderson and Rosanna - stated definitively, the correct answer: New York's Long Island and Martha's Vineyard, also known to me as "Aunt Martha's Vineyard" by my confused, little darling nephews!

One exquisite feature of the Maine coast near Bar Harbor, where I have a summer house, is the vast seal community. By the hundreds harbor seals fish, swim in the neighboring waters  and sunbathe on the warm rocky coast near my home. I love to take guests out on my boat to tour the nearby rocky outposts and islands to view these magnificent creatures. Seal Harbor really does have a population of real seals! Enjoy my seal tour in the photo gallery below and don't forget to comment!
