This 'n That from Grand Manan

Here are some photos from around Grand Manan taken over the last few days. We have enjoyed beachcombing, visiting the lighthouses and watching for whales! We did see some from the shore yesterday along with some porpoises. Didn't get any close pictures because they are too fast! Kevin bought a metal detector and has been "detecting" along all the beaches...found a loonie and some metallic rocks so far! Whoo Hoo!

The weather turned hot and sunny yesterday and looks to stay that way the rest of our visit. We will be sadly leaving on Saturday and will be stopping in Bar Harbour, Maine on the way home (I think)!

1st pic-a bee on a thistle

3rd pic-Brooke holding up a snail, who wanted to get away!
4th pic-a pretty butterfly
