For New Years Eve, Chris and I joined our two friends, Katie and Robin for a whale watching excursion in the Monterey Bay. The company that took us out guaranteed that we would see whales and possibly dolphins so we were pretty excited. It was cold but sunny and we did catch glimpses of Gray Whales (I didn't bring a long lens so my photos of them are kind of lame). We also saw tons of seals and a couple sea otters while we were out. I would recommend going in December to get better views of them but regardless, sailing around the bay is always fun!
