Snow Day

aki

Do the whales notice the snow? Does the thin curtain of white grant the five humpbacks in Fritz Cove a sense of privacy? They ignore us like the little dog ignores them. Aki is too busying plunging her face into a snowdrift. On the other side of False Outer Point, we find a raft of gulls close to the shore. Even they don’t react to our presence. Only a brace of sea ducks show a willingness to fly. They break in a panic from the water, flushed by a seal.
