Once captured, orcas near Vashon are now revered

  • Today at 1:30AM

My mobile phone buzzes and a cryptic message appears, thanks to Sound Action's podblast service: "orcas at dolphin pt headed south." I know to bundle up, grab my camera and head to Point Robinson, where I will be joined by dozens of other islanders anticipating a glimpse of Southern Resident Killer Whales or transients passing the point as they head south in their search for salmon or seals. If we are lucky, perhaps we will all be privileged to watch a spectacular display of them breeching and spy hopping.
