    Here is the latest from Wadadli. This should get us caught up. It appears
    that after a week or so of either slow (or erratic) swimming fairly near
    the coast, Wadadli has made a noticeable move to the east and slightly
    north. This has been most noticeable in the last day or so. He continues
    to be difficult to track due to the poor confidence in the positions we are
    getting, but it seems clear that he is moving in a more direct line than
    before. His most recent position is probably about in the middle of the
    mouth of the Bay of Fundy, mid way between Maine and Nova Scotia. This
    would put him about sixty miles form the nearest land. He is also over the
    deepest water yet (about two hundred and fifty meters deep). It will be
    interesting to see if this trend continues and he continues east (and
    around Nova Scotia) or heads north (into the Bay).

    Attached is a map of the most recent locations. These are the "raw"
    locations (including points that are probably not real). I think his most
    recent location is the yellow point (the ones clustering around it and
    farther offshore are probably not real).
