K-20 and K-38 all by themselves…

K-20 Spock & K-38 Comet

June 8, 2009

Today we made the long trip across the Strait of Juan de Fuca (it was calm and beautiful!), to see K-20 and K-38 off of Ediz Hook from about 2:15 to 2:30pm. They were traveling southeast with the flooding tide at a fair pace. In my 12 years of observing the SRKW community, I have not seen just 2 whales without the rest of their family, pod, or other community members reportedly in the general area!? We have made many trips these last few weeks, into Haro Strait and I have noticed a lack (not one sighting) of Dall’s Porpoises, although we have seen harbor porpoise in all the channels and straits around San Juan Island. Mysteries abound!
