July 9, 2017 – Full moon = big tides. Sailed south out through Cattle Pass and found Whale Rocks full of harbor seals – some getting splashed by the waves, and 2 small steller sea lions still hanging around after all others have gone. We heard the calls of a Peregrine falcon in an area we’ve never heard before. Eaglets are still in their nest on Long Island. We enjoyed a seafood lunch on Lopez Island and watched many birds and harbor seals at the entrance to Fisherman’s Bay – including an osprey dive bombing a bald eagle. Every trip is different.
