Carol Bogovich captured this beautiful wave seen off the Mendonoma coast.

I wish I had a video of this wave to show you! I love the turquoise color of the wave against the oh-so-blue of the Pacific Ocean.

Another favorite wave photo was taken by Jerry Anon at Anchor Bay Beach. The setting sun makes this wave look like glass.

Thanks to Carol and Jerry for allowing me to share their photos with you here.


Ahead of our last storm, Carol Bogovich noticed these unusual clouds in the sky - Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds or billows.

These clouds are indicators of atmospheric instability. Aviators have learned to avoid them because of the turbulence. They look like waves or sails in the sky.

Today the Pacific Ocean has big swells coming in, and abalone divers are warned not to go diving. As tomorrow is the last day of abalone diving, some might feel they should take the risk. They shouldn't!

Carol Bogovich was watching the Gray Whale southward migration on New Year's Day. Two whales came closer in and she was able to get these photos.

And one last look before the tail disappears into the Pacific Ocean.


Gray Whales are being seen every day, weather-permitting. Today we had a nice, gentle storm move in, giving us a good 1/2 inch of rain. Of course that makes spotting Gray Whales impossible, at least from my vantage point.
