I only got about 3 hours sleep last night – partly because of the heat/humidity and partly because of unreasonable stress. I say unreasonable because it was based on ignorance.
Early in the evening I saw a whale offshore chasing herring – the sound of the blowing carries easily across the water so I followed his progress as he hunted. I followed that progress right into my cove.
I talked to one of my whale rescue neighbours to see if there should be concern – after all, there are nets hanging on the weir and one had to be helped to escape that trap elsewhere on the Island.
I was told not to worry yet – we’d check at first light. So of course I was up before 5 – and he was still here (in the dark, but I could hear him). He left just before 6 and then the fog rolled in. Next time I’ll try to be more zen about the whole thing. 🙂
