An encounter with orcas in a kelp bed on the west side of San Juan Island, muffled initially by the sound of a cargo ship in Haro Strait.

They held a nice protest out in front of SeaWorld Florida in Orlando on Saturday, and some uninvited guests showed up. Actually, they apparently were invited -- by someone associated with SeaWorld.
