Beach combers encountered this spyhopping whale off Sandy Point last week. Organizers hope that the whales will come out for Langley’s Welcome the Whales weekend this Saturday and Sunday. The Critter Parade will march through downtown at 1:30 p.m. Activities are scheduled all day long. The Langley Centennial Community Portrait will be taken following the parade in downtown Langley. Anybody who feels connected to Langley is welcome to be in the photograph. / Photo courtesy of Jill Hein
Recent trips to Whidbey Island have proven fruitful for whale watchers. This photo taken near Sandy Point is proof enough.
