Sunday Awesomeness

The humpback whales are feeding in the bay at Avila Beach.    It's been packed with people wanting to catch sight of these awesome creatures.   We drove down yesterday morning and arrived at 8:00 in hopes of getting a parking place, and we scored.   We walked out on the very long Avila Pier and spent two hours watching a few of the whales cruising.   Although none of them came right next to the pier as they had on previous days, it was still worth the experience.   The bay was like glass with an overcast sky and you could hear the whales as they would come up and blow.   Had I been there without so many people, and had a comfortable chair to get off my feet, I honestly could have stayed all day.   

And dolphins!!!!






With our temperatures approaching triple digits this week, I will probably go again....as long as the whales stay.   

It's Monday....enjoy the day.
