She’s finally back! We saw Cajun for the first time this season over the weekend. It was such a welcome sighting! She is 14 years old this year and I remember seeing her for the first time as a calf. In 1998 I painted the whale on the dock. The original whale tail I painted was Cascade (looks like a cascading waterfall). About two days after I painted the whale, we saw her and her newborn calf (who would be named Cajun). Cajun has always had a special place in my heart over the years. She loved to play with the boat, coming along side and looking at us. Judith Scott took this picture years ago of Cajun looking at us!

We saw Cajun yesterday as well feeding on Stellwagen Bank. We look forward to many more sightings of her this year!!!
