  2. Ty so much for the pics & video…been searching since this morning 4 anything!! This is the first site ive found that works anyways!

  3. The photos from Shelter Cove seem to put the photographer too close to the water
    for safety’s comfort. Let me reassure the reader that these photos were taken at the fish cleaning station which is far above and beyond the reach of yesterdays tsunami waves.

  4. I saw that the pictures were taken at the fish cleaning station. We had been watching the news up here in the Pacific NW and didn’t know the Tsunami had hit. Until we read the mornings paper. and we’re only a few short hours away from home
