But at least one historian has placed these early tourists at the Penguin Islands just southeast of Francois, and I'm inclined to agree. I can't imagine sailing northeast from Cape Breton and missing the better part of Newfoundland, only to hit tiny little Funk Island. After reading Hakluyt's version of events, I'm convinced these guys were on the southwest coast.

The next time you are trying to sleep in your reclining seat, or cursing the snoring man in the next bunk, remember the voyage of Mr. Hore and know that things could be worse.

Like most accounts of early European voyages to the new world, details are sketchy at best. The story was documented by English historian Sir Richard Hakluyt, who interviewed one of the gentlemen from the cruise in the 1570s.
