Harold Bailey from the UK who was with us the first week of September, provided the comment and picture “I feel lucky tonight”. Whale watching safari trips from the lodge include more than humpback whales and orca. The water-ways between Vancouver Island and the BC mainland abound in marine based wildlife: eagles, large variety of ducks and water fowl, white-sided dolphins, dall’s porpoise, harbour porpoise, harbour seals and of course stellar sea lions. A safari trip without viewing a majority of these is not considered a good day.
The same grizzlies from the December 28th post have left the water and are heading for higher ground. You can tell that this is a mid August grizzly by the lack of “belly”. By the early October and more than a month of eating salmon her legs will appear much shorter. Grizzlies can increase their body weight by one third to one half before they den up for the winter.
