Day 1: 2022 Gray Whale Migration

February 1st 2022

0 North Bound 0 South Bound 0 Sightings 3.25 Hours

No Gray Whales observed on this first day of my tenth season to count, document and study the Northern Gray Whale Migration along the coast of Malibu at Point Dume State Beach, State Marine Reserve. Minus tide day 1.6 ft below the average low tide. 5-6 Dolphins traveled south just outside the surf with occasional surf riding. The sun set with a pink cotton candy and orange sherbet sky, through a hazy layer of cumulous clouds at the horizon.
