The sun was low in the sky, illuminating the clouds and creating a soft glow upon the water.
Two majestic bald eagles, with 7 foot wingspans, soared above us as we headed north towards S. Pender Island.
Our crew was thrilled that we were able to cross into Canadian waters. We said goodbye to the U.S. and hello to the orca whales! We spotted at least five orca whales that were most likely from the J-pod because J1 “Ruffles” was traveling near by. They were tail slapping and cartwheeling all over the place! After a great show, we turned back to Friday Harbor, in awe of the natural beauty surrounding us.
“All we need now is a rainbow,” the crew joked as they took pictures of the islands. Well, sure enough, a rainbow appeared, just when we thought it couldn’t get any better. Rainbows and whales.. what much else could we ask for?
