On May 28, 2019 I was walking my dog along the Seattle waterfront and saw a whale. It was the first time I have seen a whale in Washington and if you know me you know I was super excited. I spent the next 15-20 minutes watching it swim across Elliot Bay. I lost sight of the whale and it resurfaced near the ferry route. I saw a ferry go by it and thought it had hit it at first, but figured it was a distance / compression effect from the lens. Sadly, it turns out the ferry ran over the whale. I did see it breach a couple times after that and then it disappeared. Super sad to say the least.
