There was a grand display on Tenakee's waterfront one summer when a pod of five or six Humpback Whales made an appearance, boiling the waters and feeding on some underwater delicacy. Later, when the tide went out, we discovered what they had been feeding on. Large areas of beach had turned pink from millions upon millions of washed-up krill, a miniature shrimp less than an inch long and the width of a pencil line.
