whale watch

I went on a whale watch trip for my birthday on Saturday. The weather was great, with the expected fog burning away to give us clear, blue skies. And we did see humpback whales not far from the Farallon Islands.

The whale even gave us a wave at one point...

This trip was on a whale watching boat (not on a kayak). We left San Francisco and went out to the Farallon islands, which are about 25 miles off shore. There is a lot of wildlife there, including many sea birds, seals, sea lions, etc.

Sylvia's brother captured a great series of pictures of the whale's fluke.
