In the afternoon, aboard the Odyssey of San Juan Excursions, we met up with the L12's (which includes the L22's), who had made it to the South end of San Juan Island. I could see all nine of the orcas spread out in our vicinity as they traveled towards Salmon Bank. Joy L119, the young female I was lucky enough to name last summer, approached the boat with her mother Matia L77 and the two wouldn't leave us alone! Joy was being her usual active self and for our entire encounter with the two, she pectoral fin slapped, tail slapped, tail waved and even did one big spy hop.
