It's the time of year for us to witness the vanguard of the Gray Whale migration. Scott and Tree Mercer spotted one of the first groups last Sunday, nine Gray Whales, swimming purposefully south. These are the pregnant females hurrying to their birthing lagoons off Baja.
Emily Jordan was out on a boat excursion and near the Point Arena buoy when she spotted these Gray Whales.
We have had a group of subadult Gray Whales feeding off the Point Arena coast, seen nearly every day. They are probably what Emily photographed. Beautiful photos of these cetaceans that we love so much.
Thanks to Emily for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
We have a storm coming in later today, the first rain in many days. We are looking forward to it!
