The past few days have been rather quiet. We have finished all of our work and thus waiting for our departure from the island. The repairs that were needed for the plane are done and we now are just waiting for the weather to co-operate. Strangely, as soon as Adventure Canada departed the weather turned foggy, and remains so.
Of course the seals that we tagged are more than happy with the state of affairs. Although many remain resting on the island, several have swam across the Eastern Scotian Shelf to the Eastern Shore, and one is heading toward the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
We noticed something interesting on this trip. During our time roaming the central and eastern areas of the island looking for seals, we noticed there were few foals around. After, once we ventured west toward the spit the number of horses (often in large bands) and foals surprised us. There is something about that area of the island that the horses really enjoy/benefit from, perhaps a greater diversity of plant?
