The fog was clearing as we headed out this morning and soon Dalls Porpoises had joined us, riding at the bow of the boat they delighted all on board as they darted back and forth. The tide was ebbing and Harbour Seals and their small pups were observed to be hauled out on island outcrops and shorelines. At the top end of Blackfish Sound A12 was sighted, she was traveling towards Donegal Head and an advancing fog bank. The fog rolled in and yet A12 was still visible, her black body was viewed in stark contrast to the white blanket of fog that engulfed all. And, as she has done so for the last few days, A12 turned and making her way at a steady pace, she slipped back into Johnston Strait via Weynton Passage. Touring through the island waterways on the way home, the pace was tranquil and the scenery breathtaking. Bald Eagles and their nests, Belted Kingfishers darting back and forth, one Mink, a Stellar Sea Lion, Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres and Northern Phalaropes were also seen on tour.
