A little edit from my whale watching on June 28th aboard The Whale's Tail, my favorite charter on the Oregon Coast. We saw a couple of whales cruising south at a pretty high rate of speed before we decided to head back north to watch one of our favorites, Scarback. Scarback is named for the large crater-like wound on her dorsal hump, believed to be caused by an exploding harpoon back in the 1970's. The wound has not and never will heal, but it constantly being cleaned by the whale lice who inhabit it. Since her attack she has produced at least 4 calves and continues to be a favorite among locals on the coast.
