Orcas!

Thursday we left Pender Harbour and headed south toward Vancouver BC.  The sun was shining, and the wind was nil, leaving the most beautiful glossy water!  It made it very easy to see ANYthing else on the water, and strangely made things appear much larger than they really are.

At one point, I grabbed the binoculars, saying to  Al 'I either saw a HUGE porpoise, or an Orca!'  But several moments of surveying the area did not produce another view.

Later, I pointed at the AIS signal on the screen and noted that a boat that had been coming toward us had now turned around.  And later still, 'Why is that big boat just SITTING right where we want to go???'

Very soon, I got my answer.  'ORCAS!' I shouted and pointed, then moved to grab the camera.
