Every once in a while, here in the San Juan Islands, we get an abundance of whales. We often refer to this occurrence as “whale soup”. Today, we had 24 transient orcas and two humpback whales in the area. We were watching a group of transients known as the T123s, when we received word that over twenty other orcas were spotted, not too far away. On our way to see them, we stopped off and watched a humpback show its flukes. We saw some Steller sea lions basking in the sun as well. We were even lucky enough to see a peregrine falcon and its two chicks. We then proceeded to the large group of transients and what a group. It was the same large group that has been traveling together for the last week or so. What a great trip!!
