Boy Meets Seal From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joey,

I was fortunate enough to witness this encounter that a boy had with a baby seal in Wonson Cove today.  I’m not sure who had the bigger smile when it was over, but they were both very happy!  The kayaking he is using is a fantastic boat for small kids and a great value! Check out our write up about them here: http://northshorekid.com/story/lifetime-wave-kayaks-are-great-starters

Enjoy!

Hurricane Bob

This sailboat ran hard aground courtesy of Hurricane Bob on August 19th, 1991. Twenty years ago, Bob was the last hurricane to make landfall on the New England coast. The storm caused extensive damage and seventeen fatalities, resulting in the name Bob being retired from the list of Hurricane names.
