7/22-23/13 Same Point Two Days in a Row

Monday, July 22nd
...early morning, one killer whale seen going down island and into the fog...it stayed foggy along the west side for several hours...
...at about 1:30 four Transient killer whales were encountered several miles south of the island coming north...they came up San Juan Channel on the Friday Harbor side...
...late in the day out on Maya's Westside Charters we met the whales north of Friday Harbor and south of O'Neil Island...
...it was very challenging to get images with the glaring sun...they went into the north side of Rocky Bay...and continued north along the shore line, surprising some people fishing at the point...
...Spieden Island in the distance, the T77s went into Spieden Channel...

...it was time for us to leave...a few hours later I learn they were coming down the west side...I stepped outside to hear their blows as they went down island...it seems they just about circumnavigated San Juan Island today!

...Tuesday, July 23rd
...didn't realize I'd be at that same point today watching whales, only this time from shore...it was T20 and T21...they were not close to shore, but nice to watch them from afar as they went on up...
...yes, two more very unusual days to add to this season...
