We took our nephew whale watching on Saturday...from Dana Point in Orange County. The whale migration came early this year, so we only saw a solitary young whale straggling back. The highlight was the dolphins.
The trip reminded me of my 7th grade school field trip to Monterey, where we visited the then-new Monterey Bay Aquarium and hopped on a whale watching boat. Most of the kids turned putrid from seasickness...lucky for me, a classmate was passing out Dramamine in the morning.
