We went to the beach to escape the heat, and Weston found a new friend. These prehistoric creatures leave the deep ocean on odd numbered years, migrating into the Sound to feast on their preferred food, pink salmon. Young ones, like this yearling, are quite friendly. Adults, which reach lengths of 100 feet or more, are fiercely protective of their environment, and have been known to attack open-water salmon farms and arctic drilling rigs.
