Laurynn Evans: Watching Opal

Jeannie Yandel

Laurynn Evans' diving buddies call her "The Octopus Whisperer" because she's had several memorable encounters with the giant Pacific octopus in the waters of Puget Sound. But back in November of 2009, she encountered an octopus that intrigued her so much, she started making regular visits to see what it was up to. When she discovered the octopus was laying eggs and preparing for a hatch, she decided to call the octopus Opal. And watching Opal over the next several months became a way for Laurynn to learn something about her own life. Laurynn tells KUOW's Jeannie Yandel what she learned from Opal.
