Whale-less whale-watching

I had hoped to be posting a picture of at least one whale, but unfortunately, we didn't see any whales today. We had a good time nevertheless, and we did see some dolphins, seals, and some obliging pelicans.

The day began early, foggy and cool as we made our way to Balboa Peninsula. It was a good thing we all wore sweatshirts or windbreakers as the wind made it quite chilly out on the water. The sun never really managed to burn off the fog while we were out.

Once on the boat, we made our way to the bow where Brian and I snagged plum spots right out front. First we saw some pelicans, then a very small group of bottle-nose dolphins. We took a short visit to some sea lions on a bell buoy before circling back and seeing a large group of common dolphins, then we made our way back to shore.

Too bad we didn't see any whales, but we did get a coupon for 50% off our next whale-watching trip. Maybe next time!
