Transient Orca, Photos, Dolphins and Porpoises June 18 - 19

The Transients made their reappearance again today. Still running around the same are and not quite down to Powell River - but almost! Then the Pacific White Sided Dolphins came to the South end of Powell River, but didn't go by. Perhaps they heard the Orca and decided that discretion is the better part of valour.
