Another day without me in California and Chrissy finds another way to avoid spending time with my parents. Today she spent the morning at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.
FYI, I am trying to identify these birds but I am not saying I have all of them correctly identified. So if you know I got one wrong, please let me know. Most of the birds come here to eat in the shallow water. I believe this is an American Coot.
It is much easier to identify when it's head is visible.

Chrissy flew out to California this morning. I am still on call so I can't leave until tomorrow. She signed up for a whale watching tour out of Newport Beach.
She signed up for this boat, but she was the only one who did. So...
...she ended up on this boat. They did upgrade her to the VIP section where she was the only VIP on the boat. Here's the pictures she took on her "three hour tour".
I can't imagine doing this with my dogs.
Chrissy said everyone got excited about seeing a whale but it was a sea lion or maybe a seal.
This incredible newfie was swimming along with his owner who was in a kayak.
Two gray whales. I think they only saw gray whales today.
These whales are migrating north to Alaska for the summer months.
Everyone wants an ocean view. I don't blame them. I love the ocean.
Finally I see a boat I could afford.
