Leg 60 from midway down the east side of Coombs neck south, around Brown's and Stoddard islands and to the head of Smith Harbor. This was certainly as beautiful if not more so as any vista I've encountered so far. I sat and leaned against a boulder and gzed out at Isle A haut, twice in fact, an unheard of respite.

The rock contined to amaze me, as they have all along this eastern shore of Coombs Neck. Stunning volcanic formation are everywhere.

As the waves rolled in and receded they exposed this cluster of kelp that, at first glance, and even the second and third, seemed like a flock of seabirds bobbing up from bottom feeding.

Not to be outdone by Kirk's scat photos I took one of my own.

That's my pocket knife there in this enormous footprint. I left it in the photo so the viewer might better appreciate the size of who or whatever made it.

Browns and Stoddards islands are georgous little environments, the latter Vinalhaven's easternmost low tide extensions.

next Leg (61) headed for State Beach.
