We saw harbor seals a plenty, a Steller sea lion, vibrant orange starfish (healthy!), a family of river otters (there are not usually sea otters in Puget Sound, just river otters), bald eagles and scores of fish.
We spent more than six hours filming from those precarious rocks.
At the end of the day we shot a dramatic time lapse of the fiery, orange sunset.
We did not see killer whales (though now I know where they were yesterday) but it was well worth having made the trip. Every animal we filmed is a part of this story. None of that is "wasted footage."
Going into next week, we're trying to knockout three key interview in one week.
Apparently, there's no rest for 'Operation: Clandestine Sea Panda.'
...and we wouldn't have it any other way!"
