      Oh cool! Is there any way to find out if they’re headed this way, or do you just keep an eye out and get super lucky? I would love to see them pass by! Thank you for sharing this!

    ARGH! I always miss them because they seem to show up when I am at work… So I am really hoping I’ll get to see some while working from home during this mess!

    Is this the reason for the helicopter circling Seahurst Park area ?

    Are they practicing social distancing? Are those whales essential? Do they have their passes? I heard there’s a police boat out there, but it isn’t enforcing anything. Just letting any old marine creature swim right through. My sister’s cousin’s former boss told me.

      OK, that made me laugh.

      Ha, so good! Thanks for the laugh Andy ;)

      Also, thank you Kersti for looking out for Orcas, and sharing!

      And thank you WSB for all you do!

      They bypassed West Seattle when they found out all of our stores are out of fin sanitizer.
