Gray Whales Travel North

Finally the clouds have moved out leaving a clear view towards the horizon and the Channel Islands to the north and Catalina Island to the south,allowing maximum visibility to see the gray whales migrating north.  Today in the three and half hours I observed, two whales powered thru at top speed along with two separate boats also traveling at top speeds. Hundreds  of dolphins and shore birds  were seen stampeding miles out to the south and  nearly one hundred sea lions stampeded close to shore in a brilliant display of acrobatic synchronized hunting tactics.  Also seen today by a reliable eye witness (Pete) were  four  gray whales milling 250yds off the coast mid day. The giant ancient coreopsis are in full bloom all  along the PCH and at here is the view yesterday from Pt Dume.
