Observed four humpbacks throughout the course of the day. The first sighting was from our deck. I glanced outside and saw the obvious hump slipping under the water very near shore. I continued to watch, but I never saw it surface again. No pics.
Late in the afternoon from the bike path I could see a whale spouting near the southern tip of Pennock Island. It appeared to be heading in my direction (south), so I waited. It eventually swam right in front of me. It continued moving south towards Mountain Point. I was able to get a couple of pics.
Early in the evening I saw two whales from our deck very close to shore. They were swimming north towards town. I had a perfect opportunity to get a good photo of the two of them surfacing right next to each other, but my camera became very confused by the power lines. The only photo I was able to get is of one of the whales. Its dorsal fin looks very similar to one of the whales I saw yesterday.
