Humpback Whales in Pacifica!

A wonderful thing happened to me yesterday. I was walking home from the gym along a path that hugs the coast and was admiring the beautiful ocean when I saw a spray of water off in the distance and then something rise and sink back into the water slowly. I instantly thought, hey, was that a whale? or am I nuts? I called my boyfriend and made him rush down to see and sure enough it was a whale. A neighbor lady walking by told us that a pod has been hanging out for the past few days!!! I was ecstatic, I love seeing wildlife in nature! I couldn't get any pictures, because they weren't coming out of the water long enough, but apparently people have seen them breach!! I'm heading out to the beach tonight with binoculars and a camera!!

Hi Emily! It's great to hear from you and thanks for reading my very amateur blog :). I have also been following your blog and your little boy is adorable. What a wonderful little family you have! I can't believe you are a mommy already and that we haven't seen each other since the 5th grade. Oh good times as Pres and VP, music at recess, some of our first crushes, the best hairsprays on the market etc etc. Keep in touch!
