7-9-16 Orcas In the Sun and Rain

Saturday, July 9th
...in the wee hours of the morning J Pod calls kept waking me up...and since I knew some J Pod whales had been to the north of San Juan Island and others along the south west side of the island...it had to be one of them...
...so when 10 a.m. came along and I hear that all the J Pod whales who had been in were now coming down island...there's the answer as to who it was!
...off to Lime Kiln hoping to see who all are coming down before I leave to get on the boat...all who were here yesterday were present again today...
...and it was nice to see Echo J-42 traveling with her mother, Slick J-16 and little sister, Scarlet J-50, especially after she had gone off with others yesterday (see prior post about that)...
...they came past the lighthouse spread out and at a steady pace...
...out on Peregrine for the rest of the afternoon, we meet up with the whales off the south end of the island and slowly moved north with them..






...on our last trip of the day the rain began...




...all that socializing will create hunger...hoping for the salmon counts to be good and better than predicted.  Then again, if the whales eat lots and lots of salmon instead of being counted that's okay too!
