The Northern Gannet was quiet a nice surprise! We had walked down to the beach; always with our cameras in hand, and caught sight of something different flying out over the ocean. At first I thought it was an Albatross but we got back to our camp site and I quickly went to work on looking our bird up. It certainly wasn't an Albatross but a Northern Gannet was just as good! Our first Pelagic bird without the cost of a Pelagic tour!!
While at our camp site a couple horses came strolling through.

We only got 6 new year birds there but had a very good time camping in the tent. That added fifty-five dollars for camping and another fifty dollars for gas to our Big Year cost.
