Rerun - Gray Whales!

A year ago today, a friend and I had the most amazing experience on a boat observing gray whales leaping all about us. Some of them were kind enough to position their leaps where I had my videocam pointed. You really gotta see this ...

Each year, some 26,000 gray whales migrate in small groups from the Arctic to Baha, Mexico to mate. The technical marine biologist term is spring break. From December to March, these magnificent mammals can be spotted in the waters off San Diego.

Yesterday, I hopped aboard a cruise boat with my movie camera and played nature photographer.

I'll let the video do the talking. Suffice to say, the sight of one of these leviathans breaching the surface transcended all my expectations. Enjoy ...
