Jeffrey's ledge

Jeffrey's ledge

Originally uploaded by yeimaya.
Kids had gone back to school, the boat was much less crowded and we had to travel a bit further south down Jeffrey's ledge to find whales. Most likely the humpbacks were getting ready to migrate. They needed to add as much body fat as they could to make the long journey to the Carribean. There they would have their calves, or mate and then make the same trip back to the northern Atlantic without feeding again until they returned!


Measurements are in fathoms (1 fathom= 6 feet) So:

- The * on green is Kennebunkport where our boat was anchored.

- Light blue is as much as 20' deep.

- medium blue as much as 180' deep

- dark blue is as much as 600' deep
