GREAT WHITE EGRET CATCHES FISH DINNER

GREAT WHITE EGRET CATCHING FISH FOR DINNER – Famosa Slough bird reserve.  San Diego, California.

Whale Watching in San Diego – I carry this beauty in my heart.

Every year on my birthday I go out on a whale watching boat.  This year my trip was delayed by one day, but I had no regrets because everyday out to sea is a joy for me.  We saw a pod of 20 Pacific White-Sided dolphins, a pod of 400 common dolphins (with lots of sea lions swimming right along with them), & a humpback whale, which showed us his tail 3 times.  i thought the tail looked like a beautiful butterfly!  The water in the Mission Bay marina was like a mirror for all the boats, the bait dock was filled with pelicans, egrets, cormorants & sea lions.  Life as an artist by-the-sea doesn’t get any better than this.  I wept with joy.  I carry this beauty in my heart.  

The company I go out with is really great as they offer boat trips all year long.  The staff is fabulous and they post a report with photos every day of what they’ve seen on their trips.  I showed up in the photo on the boat watching the humpback whale!  I’m the woman on the right in the turquoise jacket & hat.  I was standing on the bow of the boat.  http://www.sdwhalewatch.com/
