On a ferry ride to Friday Harbor, we noticed a cluster of boats in one area. My husband thought it was just fishing, but a local San Juan Island resident spoke up and recognized it must be whale watchers because all fishing is currently out of season. I ran outside to snap some pictures, amazed to see some fins of the orca whales. Examining the pictures after I laughed more at the cluster of people on the boat all huddled to get their best look. I can't blame them because whales are truely amazing creatures.
