Whale Wishes

This year for my birthday we may not have gone somewhere tropically lovely like Fiji or Hawaii. But we did take a fun day trip "in our own back yard". The weather was glorious but, as always, I dressed optimistically and ended up being cold. Remember this: it's ALWAYS cold on a boat deck! Because I certainly didn't when it came time to dress. Anyway, we had a lovely time touring the various straits and seas of the Puget Sound (who knew it was collectively known as the Salish Sea?) and for our allotted 45 minutes, we were allowed to travel alongside some beautiful killer whales from the "J-pod" near San Juan Island. (We all know that they're neither killers (at least of humans) nor whales, correct?)
