    Kersti, I appreciate all the great work you do for the wildlife in our area and beyond. I’ve never been able to read one of these posts then make it to the beach before the whales passed by. I still find it encouraging and heartwarming to read about the sightings and hope you will continue this work. :-)

      Kersti is a West Seattle treasure. In fact, she is a treasure for Seattle, Washington State, the United States and the whole goddamned world. She is genuinely the only commenter on WSB whose comments I eagerly anticipate reading—apart from WSB’s fact-checking (‘you’re wrong, Stupid!’) posts.
