It was brought to our attention by Ray and Arlene who are camped next to us that there are whales right out in front of the campground, so out came the camera and telephoto lense. We took a bunch of pictures, only a few of which showed much of anything. There were two of them from what we could tell and they hung around most of the day not that far off shore. No great head or tail shots, but lots of shots of them spouting and a few with some of the whales actually showing.

They come by here each year, I'm told, on the way to Baja for the winter, and are California Gray whales per Ray and Arlene who have been visiting this campground for many years.
