It’s always cool when the whales commute with us.

You can’t see it very well in the pictures (because they were shot with a camera phone at dusk on a moving ferry), but there’s a whale in the water. There were actually two of them.

This is the second time in two weeks when the ferry captain has announced to us that there are Orcas within viewing distance of the ferry. Last time, they were too far away to even wish to capture with my phone’s camera. This time, they were right outside my window. By the time I’d gotten my camera phone out, they were underwater. Then, they resurfaced back behind the ferry.

Its pretty nice though, having these whales sharing our commute. It makes us more aware, as we want to see them all the time. This morning, we thought we saw a whale by the side of the boat. Turned out it was just a sea otter (but that’s pretty cool, too).
