susys running away to sea

"The rigors (sic) of an expeditionary lifestyle"

There have been cormorants since Baddeck in the Bras d'Or Lakes, swimming up to their necks, guzzling fish and standing on mooring buoys stretching out their wings to dry - adorable.

Today, Monday, there was one on our pontoon, looking at the ducks in the water. It's quite a big bird with a long yellow beak hooked at the end. Its feet gripped the end of the decking, and were clutching on in a jointed, prehensile way, like webbed hands. Then it plopped into the water, leaving behind a large porridge turd.
