Surfing Dolphins, Sun Halo: No Gray Whales

1 North Bound 0 South Bound 8.5 hrs

High winds yesterday and overnight left piles of sand accumulation in the parking lot. Massive erosion at the base of the rock climbing wall to the base of the bluff at a right angle. Sand from within the rocky edge of the cliff is eroded and exposing large boulders with mossy sea grass and intertidal mussel covered rocks.


A sun halo was seen for an hour or so, which is an optical phenomenon caused by the sun refracting light through humid air, high in the atmosphere creating a prism rainbow in a complete circle around the sun.

Late afternoon the baywatch boat headed south for the night and was greeted around the other side well past Point Dume by a pod of common dolphins stern riding the boat.
