Cormorants are not ninja loons.

001I learn new things about the island and the ocean every day. A halyard is a line that hoists a sail. A rope in use is a line, not a rope. Cormorants are not ninja loons, but they are fantastic fishers. Cadillac Mountain is the king of pink granite, but really – that type of rock is everywhere. Everybody likes an 80-foot sailboat. Teenage boys will ride their bikes off the pier into the sea and subsequently require assistance getting them back. Most of the dogs in town get along.
