Grand Manan

In September, 2012 we took a birding tour with Bob Duchesne to Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada. We stayed at the Marathon Inn. It was one of the best vacations of my life.

We started from Bangor, Maine, then next day met up with the small group and took a ferry from Blacks Harbor, New Brunswick, Canada to Grand Manan. A short trip to the marshes then back to the charming hotel.

The trip included seeing parts of the Island, such as Dark Harbor where they farm kelp and fish.

One of the days was a pelagic trip to see birds and whales.
