Picture of the Day
June 4, 2024

spacer swimming in a wetsuit, i've been approached by curious
seals. do they see me as a rival? or worse, a potential mate? tv taught me they can be dangerous! igor, visiting from port angeles, arrived too late to join me for a swim at 5:27pm high tide, but together we went back to the beach to hang out on shore. while i had my head down scrutinizing tideline detritus--tiny pinecones and crab husks--he shouted, "orca!" i missed the first sighting, but we watched and waited until the pair resurfaced, heading north. (this frame comes from a timelapse i happened to be shooting.)
