The salmon seem to be quite strong this year, hence we are really having a wonderful stretch with the residents.  All weekend long we enjoyed whales on the way up to Friday Harbor and then again on the way back.  On the four hour trips, they have been in close proximity, so our travel time is less and viewing time more.  Lets hope they keep up with the foraging and stay with us through the rest of the summer!

Really did not need these today but were ready!
