This afternoon as I lounged in the hot tub I was treated to a rare sight…orcas (sometimes called killer whales) in Victoria Harbor!!! What a treat! An adult and three juveniles swam into the harbor among the boats and seaplanes, turned the corner in the inner harbor, and swam under the bridge to the upper harbor. That hasn’t happened in many years. I didn’t have my camera in the hot tub, but here’s a photo taken by someone in the harbor:

The show wasn’t over! Thirty minutes later a sea otter swam by, exploring the shoreline. No camera again, but here’s a stock image that looks like my afternoon visitor.
Just another day on the Salish Sea.
