6-4-15 A Natural Jacuzzi - Whale Style!

Thursday, June 4 - the afternoon
...every encounter with the whales is unique...some more unique than others...
...on a late afternoon trip with Capt. Jim on the Peregrine we went down island to see J pod whales...
...little did we know that the seas were building...
...but what makes for a better jacuzzi than choppy water, going every which way...
...add to that - kelp - the whales' form of a loofah!

...their jacuzzi lasted a few minutes, and they seemed to take several more, though shorter, jacuzzis while we watched them...
...to get things started...

...

...this was fascinating to watch...what were they doing?  They know!




...not sure but it looks like a peek of Mike's teeth...

...they began to move on...you can see her little teeth...

...as they moved on Alki J-36 was pushing her baby, J-52...



If I could have I would have taken video, but it was just too choppy and you would have needed motion sickness pills just to watch it!
