The mother and calf "fluked up" making a deep dive and we figured they would be down for a while. It seemed like a good time to leave them for we were even more sensitive about disturbing mothers and calves than adults.

Fissure followed close behind so, assuming the long encounter was over, we started to back away and head for home.
