We went all the way up to Alaska to look for breaching whales, and didn't see any! But then we go up to Palos Verdes 4 miles from our home and saw this gray whale breaching all the way around Palos Verdes! It was so clear out too - could see Downtown Los Angeles from Palos Verdes, which never happens! It rained yesterday which helped clear up the sky.
