so i went whale watching again today and I SAW ORCAS I SAW THEM IN THE WILD WITH MY OWN EYES IN PERSON FOR THE FIRST TIME.
i got so freaking excited when we boated up to them i actually cried a little bit i’m gonna be honest. i can’t even explain how big of a deal it was to me. like seeing wild orcas to me would be like meeting darren criss/chris colfer for you that’s how big of a deal orcas are to me.
there were seven of them (transient orcas, for those with orca knowledge) and they actually killed what we think was a harbour porpoise while we were watching. they were close enough that i could actually hear them breathing (boating rules say you have to be 200 yards away from them at all times). it was just really magical and i wish i lived here because i would go all the time.
we also saw 2 harbour porpoises, a sea otter, 2 bald eagles and more harbour seals which was really cool, but the orcas were definitely what i came for.
now my face is bright red and painful from wind burn. fuuuuck
