or Tuff City as it's also know. Really lovely place with a great feel to it. Views from the house stunning and after a couple of days settling in, Tom doing some surfing, it was time for Big Tom (Mr Bedford) and I to do a Pelagic in search of some Pacific seabirds. Well, we picked the worst day, overcast skies and a huge swell with gale force winds meant seeing the birds was hard enough, let alone trying to photograph them. Still some images were caught, albeit it high iso settings and a very very bouncy boat.
The main attractions were: Pacific and Common Loon, Brandt's Cormorant, Greater Scaup, Harlequin Duck, Surf and White-winged Scoter, Pigeon Guillemot, Marbled Murrelet, Cassin's Auklet, Rhinoceros Auklet, and a single fly by but fantastic Tufted Puffin !
Steller's Sealions, also Californian Sealions intermixed with the Stellers.
