Big tides following the new moon and the J16’s were stationary while swimming at speed chasing fish at Kellett Bluff. J50’s scars are still visible from her date of birth. Speculated to be teeth marks from an assisted birth from other family member/s. J36 Alki was babysitting her little sister J50 with J52 while J16 Slick was ahead in Open Bay. J26 Mike sharking chasing a fish passed our bow. Like a tropical downpour squall conditions washed over us and created a double rainbow at sunset over Friday Harbor.
