When Pictures Can't Do Justice

Warning: on one of the most breathtaking days I've had in months, my camera A) could not capture the events quick enough and B) stopped working properly altogether. It's probably for the best, since we all know pictures rarely are as great as the real thing.

After work yesterday, I decided to go to the beach to get a better view of the whales migrating north with their babies. A few grey whales were fishing around Goat Rock and doing some blowhole spouting, which I wasn't able to capture.

I am such a whale nut. I fought off the urge to make my famous whale noises.

And on the other side of the beach, lying next to the Russian River was a group of harbor seals nesting with their babies.

Eventually, I need to head north and check out some new spots, but Goat Rock keeps getting better! Even on the most uncertain day, I can always feel put back together when I'm watching waves crashing on sand. Seals and whales are a super bonus. I hope migration lasts a bit longer.
