Thrilling orca whale watch

Orcas!

One adventure that we hope to repeat is another whale watching trip out of Bellingham, Washington. A few years ago we were blessed with the opportunity to take a day cruise around the San Juan Islands in the Salish Sea north of Seattle. So many wildlife sightings of both sea animal and birds happened. The highlight of course was the sighting of a pod of orca killer whales, part of which is seen in the above photo we took. Note it shows an adult and a juvenile.

Sun on the water and fog in the valleys

Here’s another photo from one of our past adventures

This photo was taken on a whale watching cruise in the Salish Sea north of Seattle. The sunlight was creating diamonds of reflections on the surface of the Sea. A wispy fog was at the same time flowing up the valleys lending a flavor of mystery to the scene.
