05/27/2006: "Humpbacks, and Orcas, and Sea Lions...Oh My!"
Well, we had an amazing trip last night around Douglas Island. We saw:
A harbor seal while leaving Fishermen's Bend, his head is behind one of the stays so it's a bit blurry.. (and right after that a MASSIVE sea lion but I didn't get my camera out in time, they are larger than black bears!)
Adam and Brian taking it easy.
I took this photo of a boring old sea gull but I think it looks cool.
Next we saw several humpback whales.
The crew: Adam, Tony, skipper Mike and Brian.
Later we sailed through a pod of orca. I hate my digital camera, there is a delay so I would always just miss them when they jumped or dove.
This is a cool shot I took in the cockpit.
Here's High Noon at sunset. That's Brian again in the hooded sweatshirt.
This is a shot of Mayflower Island as we headed down the homeward stretch.
Finally, we passed a cruise ship as we were coming into port.
Here's another view as we neared the Douglas Harbor. The smoke is from multiple bon fires on Sandy Beach. What a beautiful night it turned out to be!
