We can notice an increase of the Pigeons guillemots population . They are also very active. Between 6 and 9 elephant seals on the rocks and Chunk the famous one, came back bloody with an injure on one of his Finn and bites all over his body.

At 5h30 AM the cruise ships were heading to Victoria and at 11am the 1st whale watchers were around the rock . It has never stopped for the rest of the day. May be a correlation between the 2: cruise ships and activity at Race Rocks.

Around on Sunday it was interesting to watch 2 heavy fishing boats coming back from sea full9 elephants seals on the rocks . Seagulls on their nests; a few are aggressive as usual at this time of the year. it takes 23 to 24 days of incubation and around 40 days to see the babies taking off for the 1st time.Many eagles in the morning trying to get some eggs.
Saturday has been a busy day for the watchers and also for the small fishing boats closed to the coast. The cruise ships are back and can be seen as usual in the evening leaving Victoria.In Sunday it was nice to watch 2 big , heavy and full of fish boats coming back from high seas. Some big containers
