    Whales are in front of Lincoln Park now. Looks like they’re feeding. I see at least 4.

    I see some mid-channel between West Seattle and the north end of Blake. There’s what appears to be a whale watching boat in the area too.

    There are lots of fish out there right now. At about 8 am, I saw more harbor porpoises than I’ve ever seen – at least 40 – swimming south of the LP pool, rounding up salmon. Pure magic. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
