….or is it art imitating life? I spotted this card in my shop today as I was plumping and fluffing the merch… It reminded me of a remarkable experience I had a couple weekends ago. I was taking a water taxi across Howe Sound to Gambier Island with my family when my son spotted an orca whale – make that two – coming right towards our boat. I’d been fortunate enough to see orcas from the ferry before, but nothing compared to seeing these beauties at eye-level from the deck of a small boat. They literally travelled right beside us and carried on their way up the sound. I was in awe of the size of their fins – they don’t look that big in the books! This card by April White absolutely captured the beauty (and proximity) of that moment in time – up close and personal with two orcas in the wild. Stunning….
