We awoke to another beautiful sunrise today, as well as a couple of wildlife alerts. A coyote was exploring the nearest shoreline beach, and whales that had surrounded us during the night, enticing us with their audible blows, were now visible to those who ventured outside or even just peered out their cabins windows. Our day was spent with gray whales that gathered at the Boca, or entrance to the bay we were anchored in, where they came to socialize, flirt a little, and maybe even mate. Later this afternoon we went ashore to the dune-decorated beach nearby for some music by a local musician and a social hour of our own--with maybe a little flirting too, but definitely no mating!
