Langley, Whidbey Island is right on Saratoga Passage and in the Spring the Grey Whales come in to feed on ghost and brine shrimp on their journey to Alaska. Spy a whale? Ring the town bell! It alerts everyone to a whale sighting off the town's beach which such a fantastic sight to see. There is also a local whale center in town that is run by the Orca Network Red recommends you check out if ever in town. Red learned about Lolita a local "L" pod resident whale captured in 1970 in Penn Cove and about the efforts to retire her and "Bring Lolita Home" to live out her life in Native waters. Red didn't get a chance to see a whale and ring the bell this time, but that just gives it one more excuse (of many) come back to the Eagles Nest Inn. It will ring the bell some day followed by a "there she blows"!
