A lot of people have been seeing whales going by, and I finally saw some spouts yesterday. (Need to spend more time staring at the ocean.....) We see mostly humpback whales here, but blue whales have been sighted recently, too. I can't usually see enough of the whale to even introduce myself, let alone tell what kind it is.
Right after seeing the whales, we drove into town for dinner. On the way we saw a bobcat walking along the top of a wooden rail fence. We actually turned the car around and went back for a second look. At first I thought it was just a large cat, then I saw it's cute little bobbed tail. He (she?) was very handsome, with sort of light-colored tabby markings.
A good day for nature sightings! Oh, the deer were in our yard in the morning, too.
All for now.
