Headed north

This morning we were treated to very nice views of several Gray Whale cow-calf pairs swimming north past Bodega Head:

Here's a close-up of one of the adults:

I always feel lucky to see whales, especially close to shore!

Hi, Jackie—

From the Highway One overlook just north of Jenner, Ken Sund and I saw a mother/calf pair (or pairs?) lingering right outside the mouth of the Russian River, very close to the beach. Our guess was they were enjoying the relatively warm water coming out of the river.

Quite a few people stopped to watch them. I got similar pictures of the whales on my blog.

Thanks, Dan!

Glad to hear that whales were also appreciated up there!
