    I cannot remember how I found your blog, but I love your posts. Everything I see in your lovely pictures makes me want to pack up and move to your island! How lucky you are!

    My brother lives in Sydney, Australia. In a place called Coogee Beach. It is beautiful. And whales visit. He texts me when they do. And I get murderously jealous. Just so’s you know…

    Until I found your blog, I had never heard of Vashon island. It sure looks like a beautiful place to live and thrive! Thanks for sharing slices of your life!

    Spectacular pictures all – including from your point-and-shoot! They are goosebump worthy. Many thanks Tom for sharing.

      And Mark correct if I’m wrong but did you not propose to your fiancee at Point Robinson Lighthouse? A special, magical place indeed.

        Yes indeed, and I must add that you played a critical role in making that special moment happen! :-)

    Tom, Thank you so much for this video!! It made my heart smile and
    wish that this was the only way we could view these magnificent mammals who are so free and happy swimming in the open waters
    of the big blue sea with their dorsal fin straight and pointed instead
    of in captivity with the .dorsal fin flopped over on it’s side while they
    swim round and round.in a area that is as we all know is not big enough.

    How gorgeous Tom! We too delight in seeing the orcas frolic off of our West Coast Shores. Such an amazing sight to see!

    Thanks so much for sharing these videos Tom! I had the glorious opportunity yesterday morning to watch many Orcas … mamas, babies and big ‘ole papas dance across out at Point Robinson. I’ve lived near the water for over 30 years, but only in the Pacific Northwest for the last 3 and yesterday was the FIRST TIME I got experienced the bliss and exhilaration of watching these amazing creatures frolic together in the water. Amazing!

      Amanda, Your enthusiasm is contagious and I’m with you all the way. When my Mom visits later this month I hope we have an opportunity to see what you saw. It’s magic, is it not?

        My Monday morning Orca experience defines the word *MAGIC*. If you haven’t see this yet, following is a link to the acrobatic show the whales blessed us with out at Point Robinson. I’m still in awe of it all … enJOY :-)
