SATURDAY, AUGUST 1, 2009, This Is Our 1,000th Posting!!!
It is hard to believe how fast the time has gone since Five Star Whale Watching began posting photos and narratives from our cruises. But being out on the water on a day like we had on Saturday, August 1st, 2009 reminds us that no matter how many trips we go on, each one is a unique experience.
On Saturday we not only saw 45 Resident (Fish-Eating)Killer Whales in J & K pods, we were also treated to a view of Transient (Marine-
ammal-Eating) Killer Whale T-14, known as "Pender".
