My World Tuesday

Arichat Harbor

Arichat Harbor is the 4th deepest harbor in the world.  In the 1800's, it was a booming seaport.  
Now it rests quietly for all to enjoy.


During late July and into August, it is not uncommon to observe
Atlantic White-sided Dolphins and Pilot Whales feeding on the incoming tide.
The harbor hosts a small boat club, and the tiny islands and rock outcroppings
sprinkled throughout the harbor bear rookeries for terns and cormorants, 
and a nesting site for eider.


from all around the world.

Wow! That photo is absolutely breath-taking. You live in such a beautiful area. I don't know how you get anything done. I'm afraid I would be outside all the time. Discipline! I'm sure! Nola

Looks like a postcard, from a destination where one could pull up a beach chair and not move all day.

Your sunset photo is stunning, Karen. It must be exciting to spot migrating whales.
My husband and I have talked about going whale watching but haven't done it yet...maybe someday, I hope!

It's such a beautiful harbour! Since it's so deep, I wonder why it is not used.
