Trip to Trinidad Whaling Station, July-August 1926
Choppy Seas & No Whales
Capt. Lane & his daughter came to the dock at 4:15 a.m. & we all went aboard. The sea was oily smooth & by sunrise we were well off shore.
Wind came up about 10 a.m. & caused a heavy chop – took northward course paralleling the coast at about 40 miles offshore, saw few Black-footed Albatrosses but not nearly as abundant as yesterday. Traveled all day & didn’t see a “blow”. In late afternoon the sea was running high with decks awash, so put into Crescent City for the night.
Near the small inlets that mark the entrance to the harbor many Murres were seen with their single half-grown young.
As we entered the harbor two black Oystercatchers were seen.
