W is for...

Wonderful Wednesday, when I go whale watching. Every Wednesday, 'til the end of March. I go as a volunteer with the Birch Aquarium at Scripps. Last Wednesday we saw; (click on any to biggify)
New Horizon, Scripps Research Vessel, maybe taking sediment samples in the bay.

Helicopter wash, Naval Air Station North Island
Lighthouse at Pt. Loma
Navy plane. Maybe C-130? Later we saw paratroopers (Navy Seals?) jumping out. I have video to post later.
4 Gray whales headed to Baja. (yes, we do see whales too!) Its been a good season so far!
Common dolphins, playing in the wake. We're seeing lots of these.
In the distance, Hotel Del Coranado.

One of the things I love about going out whale watching, I never know what we might see.
