spotting Orcas

San Juan Island was a long day on the bike. At least 70 miles.

Late in the day, however, I stopped at Lime Kiln State Park where folks were gathered for a fun evening. The park is considered one of the best places in the world to view wild orcas.


I’ve seen many rare animals: Red Panda, Himalayan Bear, 2 Snow Leopards. But I’d somehow managed to miss seeing Orcas on any of my many, many trips around the Pacific N.W. coast. Until now. 🙂

The Blackfish crew was there.

Blackfish is a 2013 American documentary. It concerns Tilikum, an orca held by SeaWorld and the controversy over captive killer whales.

On Rotten Tomatoes the film has a score of 98% based on 119 reviews.
