Chasing Whales with Captain Jim
Last week I stole away to Friday Harbor for my annual whale watching fix with Captain Jim Maya. Jim almost always finds whales, and often other sea creatures as well, like dolphins, sea lions and eagles. It’s a fun ride on his fast 27′ Glacier Bay twin-engine boat “Peregrine.” Last Wednesday we found a pod ‘way out in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The weather’s been a little iffy lately, but we lucked out and got sun AND whales! And Jim’s grandson “Ike,” almost 3 1/2, was along, too.
