For the first time this year, on Octo­ber 15, the L54 blend­ed fam­i­ly, con­sist­ing of Ino (L‑54), Coho (L‑108), Keta (L‑117), and two adult males, Nys­sa (L‑84) and Wave Walk­er (L‑88), came into the inland waters with J Pod.

They spent sev­er­al hours in Haro Strait, for­ag­ing on Chum salmon. The late after­noon sun high­light­ed their exhalations,as they trav­eled in a south east­er­ly direction.

The next day, J Pod and the L54 group were seen in Puget Sound, con­tin­u­ing their for­ag­ing on what appeared to be an abun­dant Chum salmon return.
