I was all excited for this weekend. Today was supposed to be my first trip as a Whale Watch Naturalist for the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. Think of it as a docent for the high seas!
Unfortunately, the weather has meant small craft advisories and visibility limited to a quarter mile all weekend and no one’s going out.
I’ve been faithfully commuting to San Pedro once a week for a class since October in preparation for this moment. I was looking forward to posting photos of whale flukes and bow-riding dolphins this afternoon. I got a new telephoto lens for my camera and new binoculars. Alas, it is not meant to be. Yet.
There is only one landing going out for the rest of January – that’s Redondo Sport Fishing. But come February two others will also offer tours out of LA county – Long Beach Sportfishing and Spirit Cruises – Ports o’ Call.
