Today was an almost perfect day to head out into the Pacific Ocean beyond Point Loma.
For a mid-February day, the water was amazingly smooth and the cloud cover thin. The chilly wind was not unexpected.
I and many others, wrapped in jackets, enjoyed a four hour trip aboard Flagship’s whale watching ship Marietta.
We saw a mother gray whale with her young calf and followed the two from a respectful distance. In two of the upcoming photos you can see a spout. In my previous blog post, I gazed down upon some of the hundreds of dolphins we encountered very close up.
Enjoy a few hazy, dreamy photos I took from the deck of Marietta. There are sailboats, a line of pelicans flying, downtown San Diego, Point Loma, and the Coronado Islands of Mexico off in the distance.
I haven’t edited these photographs at all, except to crop the one photo where the whale spout is most evident.
