Many recreational boaters are enjoying the final days of summer in Baie Sainte-Marguerite. We’re also in the area, studying belugas aboard the Bleuvet. We encounter a herd of about 35 individuals, consisting of adults, juveniles and a newborn. Several belugas are logging, meaning they are resting at the surface like floating logs. Then, little by little, the animals start becoming more active, at which time we can see tails, pectoral fins and even their heads poking up out of the water. It is at this moment that we recognize within the herd April, who is swimming with Athéna.
