Last Labor Day at Morro Bay
This was one of those really nice, perfect days. We started at Morro Bay and played on the beach, saw otters and seals and sea lions, then when to Pismo Beach and walked out onto the pier and saw whales. The older girls loved having their picture taken with the Pelican since they like the movies A Dolphin's Tail 1 & 2 and in those movies is a pesky pelican.
Out to sea, almost at the horizon, was a huge pod of whales. We watched them spouting as they slowly swam toward shore. They got close enough that when they breached, it was easy to see their pectoral fins. It was my first time seeing large whales in the wild and even though they were very far out to sea, it was still amazing.
