The top photo is of AE22 Petal, a 14 year-old female and the only remaining daughter of AE10 Rose (died in 2007)

The second photo is of Petal’s 26 year-old brother, AE15 Hanning. He is the only living son of AE10 Rose. Hanning’s fin is flopped to the right, indicating that he has gone through trauma or illness.

Happy to say that tomorrow I am going down to the Kenai Fjords on a wildlife cruise! Of course, I am hoping to spot some of our resident orcas and maybe even transients.

If I see orcas, I’ll let you guys know and post pictures!
