Being a 9 – year old kid sometimes has its perks. We took a one and a half hour boat ride to give our grandson a better view of the rocky Maine coastline – and to see the Nubble Lighthouse from a different perspective – and on the way back to Perkins Cove the captain asked him if he’d like to take the controls for a while. As you can see, the captain always had at least a finger on the wheel, but Max thought he was driving. But if he started drifting toward the rocks, the captain would give the wheel a slight nudge in the opposite direction.
While we were out there, we heard that a few great whites had been seen along the southern Maine coast. They will, apparently, go wherever the seals go. And we did see 3 or 4 harbor seals on our little trip. But no sharks. Too bad. That could have been interesting.
I’m wondering, though. How exactly do you ask a great white shark to smile for the camera?
