Mike Benbow spotted this gray whale in Port Gardner near Mission Beach on Tuesday. Gray whales migrate between Mexico and Alaska every year. From March through May, they're headed north. About a dozen whales venture into Possession Sound, Port Gardner and Port Susan every year to stop and feed. Whale-watching groups in Washington say that about six are regulars and the others change from year to year. Read more about the whales and local whale-watching tours here.
