Anyway, I couldn't POSSIBLY choose just a half dozen for the blog post, so I made a little slideshow/video. That light streak under the water in one of them? That's a Mola Mola. Hard to photograph with what I had. You'll also see some sea nettles in the photos.
At some point I'll likely post some blogs with individual pictures. There are several photos that can be used to ID the whales, a few unique features on some of the whales worth pointing out, and I'll probably also want to post about the importance of sea otters, as well as some posts about jellies. But that's all in the future. Monterey Bay is about 3-4 hours drive, which means we were up at 4 am this morning. The rest of the evening (what little there is) will be spent relaxing and dreaming of the next trip.
