The Puffins on Bird Islands in Cape Breton

Perhaps the most fun Jen and I had when in Cape Breton recently was on the boat trip to Bird Islands to see the Puffins and other birds.  We toured with Donelda's Puffin Boat Trip, and I highly recommend this tour if you are ever in Cape Breton.  Donelda was the perfect tour guide, and she and her husband Captain John  know just the right places to go to see the birds.

We enjoyed the scenery while waiting for the boat to come in.

Lots of lobstering in the area.

While on board Donelda threw fish overboard and the eagles came in to devour them.

Those eagles know when to look for Donelda's boat.

We saw lots of seals and puffins.  I wasn't able to get good photos of the puffins or seals.  The puffins were so fast in the water.  So I've snagged some from Donelda's Puffin Boat Tour.
