Orca feast

Sunday, December 14, 2008 7:23 PM

It was an extra special day for the Sea. We awoke to seals playing on the reef, dolphins jumping, and a school of small rays jumping out of the water doing flips.  What a show the sea was providing. And then the big act came - a pod of orcas (‘killer whales’) came by and spent nearly an hour jumping around and hunting those luckless rays.  But their hunger made the rays jump even higher. An amazing morning! 

We have spent numerous dives and paddles on the water here, as the days are hot - ~ 80 degrees F - and the seas mostly calm. I hear the northern winds will pick up and blow for days on end, but it’s been mostly calm thus far.
