Incredible picture taken in Sitka, Alaska
Yep, that is me in the picture. Yep that is a whale that was just around the corner from the ferry terminal.
“Paddle really fast” is the only thing I could think of at the time..
Also thinking that I don’t look like a herring, don’t smell like a herring but with the same herring instinct of “get the hell out of the way of that big mouth!!”
Still living to tell yet another story..
My friend took the photo at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka. The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface around the kayak).
