We were trying to capture a good fog in Great Cove on Monday (April15), when we spotted something strange emerging.


At first, we thought it was a lost lobster trap buoy. When it got closer, however, we saw that it was a cluster of escaped party balloons. Thus, we had to get a little wet to remove a happy thing that had turned dangerous.


This is the second time this year that we’ve seen balloons in the Cove. As you know, for wildlife, these are as bad as or worse than plastic, especially after they burst or otherwise deflate. We all must be careful with them. More images of the fog and balloons:
