8/25-26/16 Polaris J-28 and baby J-54

Thursday, August 25th
...the day started with...


...August is usually hot, at least part of it...the worst thing in the world for salmon...and the worst thing for the whales because of the worst thing for salmon...
August 25th
...Granny was in the lead with some of the J16s - Mike J-26, Slick J-16, Scarlet J-50, and Echo J-42...with them were Hy'Shqa J-37 and her offspring, T'ilem I'nges J-49...then about 10 minutes later, Shachi J-19...
...some of the kids were not there (a group of 6) - like:  Slick's other two - Alki J-36 and her offspring Sonic J-52, Hy'Shqa's brother and sister - Suttles J-40 and Se-Yi-Chn J-45, and Shachi's offspring and her offspring - Eclipse J-41 and Nova J-51...
...the group of 6 came zooming by after the J17s had come up and then had gone back down island...


...six of the J17s came up...Tahlequah J-35 and Notch J-47 had stayed down island...
...the six stayed for about 20 minutes before going back down island...




August 26th...
...the J17s and the J22s had gone up island sometime in the night because they were now coming back down island in the morning...going against a strong flood tide didn't make things any easier for them...
...they all went down island past the lighthouse, except Polaris, J-54 and Star turned and spent the next three hours in our view from shore at the lighthouse...






...it was only one day...but gave a glimmer of hope that there was a chance they both might make it...
