A sighting can begin with a startle, out of nowhere you hear a blow or splash so loud you jump. You may see something in the waves up close or far away that is not quit right, you’ve looked at the wave patterns for so long you can recognize a disturbance. If you are lucky the Humpback, Killer whale, Dall porpoises or any other number of creatures will come close enough for a good look. At any sighting your heart beats faster and your senses are on alert in hopes of getting another glimpse. It might last a few seconds or be prolonged in either case the grin on your face can be spotted miles away.
