Captain - there be whales here!

No - really - humpbacks. The coolest thing ever yesterday.
Today, however, totally sucked and the fault lies totally with Horizon Air - avoid them if at all possible. They have no sense of customer service and we spent 10 hours (yes, TEN hours) in the Victoria airport. Dave is writing a letter to them explaining just how unreasonably unhappy they made us and a lot of other passengers. We didn't get back into the States until 9 pm today.
