9-28-10 The Last Time I Saw Canuck

Tuesday, Sept 28th

...all three pods showed up coming down Boundary Pass, and rounded the corner at Turn Point...

...several stopped to forage...

...then continued moving on down island...
...I could see way up ahead were Ruffles J-1, Granny J-2, Lulu L-53 (Canuck's daughter) and lots of J pod whales...with K pod whales in the mix too...
...the L12s were the last to come by...Mega L-41 - well you can't miss him...
...the last whale I saw of the inshore group as they were crossing Spieden Island toward Henry Island was Canuck L-7 part of The Continuing Saga of Canuck and Lulu...that was strange... (added later: and sadly that was the last sighting of her ever.)
...soon the whales began to fan out and by the time they reached Lime Kiln they were spread all the way across Haro Strait......I made it to the park before the first whale reached it...that was amazing in itself!...

...several, including the K14s, passed by somewhat close to shore...


. ..the others were a 'million' miles offshore looking like they were heading toward Discovery Island which usually means...bye, bye...
...with the glare of the sun and the whales spread all over we don't know if Canuck ever made it down this far.
