6-25-17 J Pod and Others All Day Long - Part 2

June 25th - Part 2 
...all day the whales went up island, then back down island, up island, and back down...
...it was a stunning day...but how one describes it isn't that easy.
...filled with close passes along the shore line - like they used to do...
.....with family groups tightly together - like the used to do...
......with energetic, playful-looking groups...
.......moving with an electricity that seemed to come from them to us.

When you see the whales doing what they used to do, after having watched them for the last few years in a very different and concerning way, it brought this person hope - hope for the whales.

But in reality it all has to unfold and may it please unfold for them with salmon, salmon, salmon - that is what they need - more than anything.

Here are some images from the day:

...and it wasn't even noon yet...soon they went back up island...



...
...the K14s chose the shore side...


...yes, it was a most extraordinary day, a day we haven't seen like this in a very long time...many possibilities for reasons why, but for now we're just very glad to see the whales getting food to sustain them...may that trend continue...

...and tomorrow?   MORE SALMON PLEASE!
