4-16-13 They Just Stopped!

Tuesday, April 16th
...the T65As, T49Bs and T49A2, who were here Saturday 4-13, showed up again today, this time traveling through many different passages, among several small islands not far from Morseby Island...
...then they headed toward Boundary Pass...the moms seemed to be up ahead and most of the kids lagging behind...sometimes the kids would porpoise - maybe to catch up?...
...sometimes their lunge was so high their tail would be out of the water as they came down...
...this is not a cartwheel...it's the end of a huge leaping lunge!

...it was funny too that they porpoised toward one of the tall ships that comes out of Victoria and then 'visited' it for a few moments...lots of kids on that ship...hummm...did the whales know?  Ha!


...after all that porpoising they began taking long dives, and at one point the whales surfaced and then stopped...logging at the surface...it lasted less than a minute...

...The T65As, T49B and B2 and T49A2 continued to move along...the other day they were very hungry and took a lot of harbor seals...today they had either eaten early or were going to dine late.
