Some special visitors
A pod of Orcas (aka “killer whales”) payed Nanaimo a visit last month. Such whales aren’t so unusual to see on and near the Island, but it was nice to have this pod of 13 come to Nanaimo all the way from Alaska to say “Hi.” This may not seem like a big deal to some people who live on the island, but I’m in Tokyo right now and can tell you that to people here such a thing is awesome, that’s why even though this is a real estate blog, this is up too.
I was given permission to use these photos by the DFO Biologist, Graeme Ellis, who took them. Thanks Graeme!
