Rainbows & Clouds…Yoga & Whales

Written by Natalie Lucier

At the beginning of August we had a full moon. I’m not sure of the exact day but this was the night before the complete full moon. The moon was bright and shining strong, lighting up the mountains as a beautiful silhouette landscape.

It was a dreamy morning on Aug 2nd, 2012. As the sun peeked through the clouds, a rainbow appeared and a beautiful sailboat came by. It was a quiet day on the water and this was a special moment.

On August 5th, we witnessed 4 Transient/Bigg’s orcas hunting a Dall’s porpoise. They were splashing and porpoising straight out of the water!  I shot some video of the spectacular hunt that took place at the entrance to Blackney Pass, although the whales were mid-pass and pretty far, I could still make them out splashing and porpoising out of the water! About an hour or so after the hunt, around sunset , the Transient/Bigg’s came past CP again. I shot video of them as they passed by.

Leah took a photo of me on the deck at CP– just after I shot video of the transients on Aug 5th.

On August 6th – I was lucky enough to get a HOT Shower on Hanson Island! I felt clean and balanced on Aug 6th.  Kristen took a photo of me.

Humpback whales have been making an appearance quite often as well. This photo was taken on Aug 8th.
