5-19-16 They Stayed Day After Day

Thursday, May 19th
...well they stayed around...with others too...
...on the evening of May 17th some people on the ferry, just about to arrive in Friday Harbor, were greeted with a group of killer whales chasing after Dall's porpoise...I learned about it and how extraordinary it was when I received a frantic phone call!!  :)
...on the 18th those whales, the T75Bs and the T77s were still around, though over on the Canadian side, in among some of the gulf islands...not sure where they were, or if, seen on the 19th...
...now for the 19th, late afternoon trip on Peregrine with Capt. Jim at the helm...the T36As, T65As and Bs, the T99s were together again...T93 and T97 were off in the distance...off to the west were T11 and T11A...and a few miles north of all of them were the T123s - WHEW!




...it appears they had made a kill a short while before...

...the lighting at this time of day was pretty nice...
...I've seen them ragged and smallish nicks but this is quite large...
...Patos Island...
...Pt. Roberts area in the distance...
...day after day of these transients continues as the norm...for now anyway...
