POTD: Whale Watching

Whale Watching
Pt. Reyes, California
2011

The California gray whales were migrating south past Pt. Reyes while we were there. Three had been spotted earlier in the day and ten the day before but we didn’t see any in the short time we were there. It was such a nice day all the whale-watchers were gathered on the deck outside the lighthouse with spotting scopes. On a more typical cold, windy day, this austere but protected spot inside with a good view out over the water would be a very popular spot.
