I decided after several days of overcast and gray skies, that I could not let a day with sunshine go by. Even if the winds were suppose to be up. So, with a sandwich and chips in hand I headed out for a lunch on the water.
The water wasn’t too bad so why not go out a ways for lunch. Well, why not go on out past the second oil platform where I often find dolphins. NOTHING! Float around and eat lunch then decided even though the ocean was getting rough, that I liked the way I saw waves crashing on Santa Cruz Island.
I was starting to get 8 – 10 foot seas and in the Zodiac wasn’t concerned about safety — just a rough ride home. I was 20 miles away. Time to head home. But, wait. NO WAY. Whales are out of season and should all be gone! I found myself in the middle of four active humpback whales. Check out the photo album here and Richard’s Photographs for more images.
