    We saw then go by at Alki – we were on the upper deck at Dukes for dinner and saw the whales moving West, pretty close to shore.

    Welcome transients!

    Just heard this interview about our southern resident orcas, good listen, sharing for others who may be interested:

    T18 family! I’d know Galiano’s giant fin anywhere. I’ve never seen them south of the San Juans before!
