The first animal we spotted just as we left the harbor: a bald eagle!
Little did I know that that would be just the start of it!
|Wild goats, I believe|
|Mom and baby hauling out|
|Look at the rack on this deer!|
|A place where seals come out of the water is called a haul out|
|Seals and an Oyster Catcher|
|Pigeon Guillemont (you can tell by the bright red feet)|
|Interesting rock formation|
|Haul outs also happen on kelp|
|It's pupping season right now, so the mother seals are often with their pups|
|This Juvenile Bald Eagle flew right over our heads|
|And this Bald Eagle put on a show for us|
At the conclusion of our boat ride, we had a party back at the Whale Museum with the most delicious cupcakes as well as a talk by Rosie of the Samish Nation about the unique relationship between the native peoples of this area and the Orcas.
