Cetaceans return

Working in my office this morning and I see a post on the Bowen Island Forum indicating that a huge pod of dolphins was heading north. I look out my window, grab the binoculars and see a wave of 100 or more dolphins swimming sometimes in a perfect curtain of spray, all rising at the same time, between Whytecliffe and Dorman Point.  Amazing.

And then reading later that there were 5 orcas trailing them too, which I didn't spot.

Herring must be running already...nice to have our cetacean friends back.
