8-21-15 Someone Is Coming In!

Friday, August 21st
...it was about 10 a.m. when the whales came up island...about 15 L pod whales present and 7 K pod whales...an unusual grouping...but this is who stayed in when the rest of J and K pod whales left...
...Skagit K-13 and Nugget L-55 were in the lead...then came Muncher L-91...and then Spock K20 and Comet K-38...Lapis L-103 and Surprise! L-86...and others mixed here and there...they were off shore.
...they were barely past the lighthouse...turned and went back down island...
...my first thoughts. "Someone is coming in!" I was even more convinced that some were coming in when, in the afternoon these same whales came up to the lighthouse...


...and didn't even get past it...turned abruptly and went back down island...



...and yes, they were animated...

...it wasn't until late in the day I learned that whales were inbound, many miles to the west!...I believe the whales already knew, in the morning, that others were coming, so they were just waiting until they arrived...
