In June, they'll return with their calves, and some will linger in these waters, mothers and daughters cavorting around these rocks, visible from this rail any time of the day. One surfer swears that they were watching him!
If you are ever able to see these marvelous creatures up close, please do. Add this to your wish list: a visit to the Pacific shores either in late December/early January, or all month of June.
A friend of mine who volunteers at the shore to help visitors recognize the spouts, tells me she spotted 35 whales during her shift. A great record.
