8/19-21/13 Two Days With Transients

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, August 19-21

Monday
...yesterday when the Residents were here, there were Transients on their way in - lots of them...they went north in the night...but by mid morning someone spotted the T30s who had decided to come back down our way...out on Maya's Westside Charters we met up with them...and they gave us a good example of how Ts will sometimes change direction a lot...we left them heading west out the Strait of Juan de Fuca...
...on a grey kind of morning this boat livened up the picture...
Tuesday
...I believe there were no killer whales sighted anywhere in these waters...which of course gives us other opportunities...Spieden Island a very interesting place...fallow deer...
...it must be getting to be that time of year...
Wednesday
...it started out with an unconfirmed sighting of a (or 2) humpback(s)...not ever found...but by the afternoon whales were seen coming in the Strait of Juan de Fuca...lots of Transients...it seemed like there were 20 or more, including 2 adult males...one was T30A...the other was from the T185 group...I had not ever met that group before, I barely got an image of him...there were lots of family groups with lots of kids...I usually try to get ID shots because I like to know who is here, so I don't try for the pretty scenery shots sometimes...




...most of them seemed to be heading for Port Townsend...
