Thar she blows! Actually, there she just sort of comes up and shows a bit of fin and then dives again! The elusive blue whale. Elusive might be the wrong word. We saw around twenty whales of the blue and humpback varieties on our little trip out from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz Island and back.
And then, when we least expected it . . . SHARK ATTACK!! Just kidding. Dolphin attack. That doesn't have quite the same ring as shark attack. Oh well. The scientific folks with us said that one can generally count how many dolphins are in a pod by multiplying the number visible on the surface by five.
I had a real life for a week in San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, and Santa Barbara, California. I have eaten enough fresh strawberries to last me until at least July. Now I can go back to happily doing laundry, washing dishes, and blogging until my heart is content. Hooray!
More pictures to come. Maybe.
