Whales along the Mendocino Coast

Wife Sarah and I took our dodgy canines for a walk about sixish today, We went to the west end of Ward Avenue in Cleone where it intersects with the Haul Road. The Haul Road used to be where the tracks were between the Union Lumber Company’s Mill in Fort Bragg and the Ten Mile River Basin. We pass by a car and a guy yells at Sarah from the window, “Didja see the whales? – Straight out just beyond where the surf starts,” We stop, Sure ’nuff there were whales spouting!!!!!

Of course I didn’t have a camera or bins (binoculars) so I couldn’t record what we were seeing. However I did have whale pics “in the bag”. Have a butchers below ……
