April 30th, 2010.

Today was a very exciting day in the Salish Sea.  It’s most famous residents, the orcas of J Pod returned from an almost 2 month hiatus.  This time of year is always abuzz with excitement, as to when the residents will return.  Typically seen in all of the months throughout the year, J Pod had not been seen since early March.  Last year they were gone all of April and returned the second week of May.  This year was looking much like last until yesterday.  J Pod returns to the waters of the Salish Sea!!  It is so nice to have our “friends” back.  The waters were rough yesterday, but that didn’t bother the orcas.  Welcome back J Pod!
