Not Always Empty

On Saturday conditions at First Beach were perfect for seeing the grey whales, except for not seeing any. It was blue, and still, and the ocean was nearly flat. I could almost believe that if there had been whales passing by just then, I'd have seen them.

There were lots of people everywhere.

And a perfectly amazing giant piece of drift, which seems to have arrived this winter...
