Northern Gannets 40 Miles NNE of Annisquam

Joey – we got quite a show from a group of Northern Gannets yesterday about 40 miles NNE of Annisquam.  Pretty spectacular with their 6 ft wingspreads, zooming low right over us. 

Around the same time we had Monarch butterflies about.  The wind was W about 15-17 kt.
