7-20-13 K Pod Came South and Headed On Out

Saturday, July 20th
...from what I heard, K pod went all the way up to the Fraser River yesterday and today they were heading back down...and against a strong incoming tide...just before 3:00 pm they began passing by Lime Kiln lighthouse...
...Lulu L-53 was in the lead and near her was Lea K-14...
...the sun glare made picture taking very difficult...however, this male helped everyone out...
...after Scoter K-25 breached a few times he continued, moving slowly against a strong current...pink salmon (they are very small) were leaping and one leaped just in front of him...
..his dive angle changed...he seemed to stop and get that salmon!...he was very animated this afternoon...
...Saturna K-43 and her mother, Sequim K-12 were some of the last of K pod to pass by at the lighthouse...

...the K pod whales present are the same as yesterday...and Lulu L53, whether her other 3 subgroup members were present or not, I don't know...
...after a while the whales began to head back up island, but turned and slowly moved offshore in a southerly direction...bye-bye for this time...

...I wonder what they will tell Granny J-2 about their jaunt to the Fraser River...
