Gaby and I went on a whale watching tour while in San Diego recently. It was really cool! Somehow I managed not to get sick despite the large swells. Thank you Bonine. I don't know how those fisherman do it in the Bering Sea! Five miles out from Point Loma we came across a baby fin whale and eventually caught up with the mother.
Of course my eyes were looking for sea birds to. I had good looks at Xantus's Murrelet and distant views of Rhinocerous Aucklet, Parasitic Jaeger, and Sooty Shearwater. What a great bonus!
Later, we found some sea lions hanging out on the rocks at La Jolla Cove.

There were also some seals chillin' at the "children's pool" nearby. Not sure why they call it that, I wouldn't let my kids near there, seals or no seals. It gets deep in a hurry! And at a local deli, I saw photos of a Great White Shark hunting seals there. No thanks!
Another awesome trip to San Diego! It never disappoints.
