On 7/1/13, all of L pod left in the morning, but the L12's and L22's came back in the night. On 7/2/13, both matrilines foraged and played along the West Side. On the morning of 7/3/13, the L12's left for the open ocean, and the L22's remained. As of posting this, the L22's are still hunting for Chinook Salmon along the West Side.
The L22 matriline is made up of only three members: Spirit L22, and her two sons named Skana L79, and Solstice L89.
We caught up with the L22's on the "Odyssey", a San Juan Excursions whale watching boat, at False Bay on the West Side of San Juan Island, as they made their way South. Skana was the Southern most orca as he went about foraging, while his mother, and younger brother socialized.
