Yao, Wendell, and I went kayaking from the harbor towards Miramar, then out to the buoy and back. We missed meeting Kimberly somehow. It was a cool and somewhat foggy day, but pretty nice.

There were lots of humpback whales, plenty of harbor porpoises, and thousands of sooty shearwaters, with lots of murres, pelicans, etc.

Most of the movies are whales, a few are porpoises, or just the birds.

A few of the pictures got the whales, but mostly spouts.

Click on pictures for a medium size picture that fits on most browsers The large picture can then be viewed by clicking in turn on the medium size picture. The large images are good for seeing fine detail, and for printing. If they are larger than 3000 pixels in any dimension, they are shown at 1/2 size; the original full image is available on request for those. Movies are MPEG4 movies (new ones are H.264), and the thumbnail gives the size of the movie.
