And this! And that! And this!

I went out on the boat yesterday. I took so many pictures I don't know which ones to post!

Well, we did see orcas, and I've been wanting to see them all year, so to start, I'll give you this little video.


These guys were members of the resident AE pod, which actually has about 20 animals. They're the ones we see most often out there. Usually they're pretty friendly and will come up to the boat and swim underneath, but they were being pretty elusive yesterday. The one with the tall, straight dorsal fin is one of the biggest males in the pod. The others with him were all females or young ones.



We also saw a bear...


otters...


a sea lion posing on Bouy 9...


horned and tufted puffins...




a stony face...


an iceberg that looked kind of like the Sydney Opera House...


and a lot of fantastic scenery.






And here are a few of the mountains and scenery around town. It's been rainy and foggy for the past 2 weeks straight, but a few days ago it started clearing up in bits and pieces.





I took these two off of my front porch at about 8:30 in the evening.
