Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

We played a game called big booty and we saw some seals throughout the day

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

We are tied to a linear moorage in Echo Bay on Sucia Island.  The Carlyn is on glassy water with a very calm wind coming from the north.
