4-23-14 From No Orca to Lots!

Wednesday, April 23rd
...word of transients coming down!...out on Maya's Westside Charters we meet up with some of the whales as they head over toward Sidney, BC...
...we pass by T65B and her little one, who has grown a lot...and off in the distance see T63 - Chainsaw and T65, his constant companion...
...there were some others with them...when they surfaced again they had split...

...we stayed with the group that had the kids...

...

...they took the channel west of James Island and we had taken the Sidney Channel!...they had made a kill...we arrived just in time for their celebration!
...baby-T124A5 and ?...
...'heads up'!
...they continued down the Channel, still had some of the meat with them...

...we last saw them with people along the shore with the dogs playing...and several of the young kids who must have been playing with seal parts...staying in one spot, fins going in all directions, etc!
...it was a wild ride back to the harbor and we all made it safe, sound and dry!
