Whale update

Okay, so this morning I found out that the whale is actually a young adult Gray Whale, about the size of a school bus. He has found a good feeding area and will probably stay there until he notices the cupboard is bare. Local whale watching organizers are reporting that this is going to be a pretty good season for admiring these amazing creatures.

Baby Humpback Whale in the Harbor

A baby humpback whale has been hanging out in the harbor where I work for over a week now. Curious people are all over the place here trying to get a close look at it. You can watch a youtube video of it at SantaBarbarasBlog. This type of behavior isn't all that uncommon apparently as they are rather playful creatures. It is just one of the many joys of living in paradise!

I love the comment from Clearview: "... I hope that whale pulls a Moby Dick and takes a kayaker into its mouth and goes to the bottom for 20 minutes."
