The Whales

Sea Lion Sailing in the East Bay yesterday, me & my friend wondered if today would be the day that the whales emerged from the Delta. A few hours later we heard over the maritime radio channel, the US Coast Guard announcing that two whales were headed to the Benicia Bridge! We yelled to another boat passing by, and a guy raised his beer and yelled back:

“Let’s hope some Japanese businessmen buy the rights and put a flag on them.”

Good luck whales. Story in the Chron here. Great coverage here – KCBS– and they’re reporting more on the Coast Guard updates, and how it’s impacting the ferry schedule too.

Update: Kind of lame for me to do this, but I took video of the Golden Gate, and I think that I saw some whales cresting, but not sure. In the video, you can’t see anything. Just lots of boring water, and some seagulls. I’d post the video directly here but I don’t believe Moveable Type supports Vidavee, the video server I’m using. Boring Video here.
