Last weekend, we drove up to Salmon Beach to go whale watching.
They were there!
It’s pretty tough to get pictures of them from the shore, so we just relaxed and watched the ocean:
The grey whales were feeding within 20 feet of the rocky shore. Since we’d arrived at low tide, we were able to get right out to the drop off. Once, a whale surfaced right beside us – we could count the barnacles of her back.
Between whale sightings, we watched the canvasback ducks and surf scoters dive and bob around in the waves.
Then, we went beach combing for abalone, top snail shells and live oysters.
It was a great day.
